Anthony Creek (Neola to Greenbrier River)


Anthony Creek is a good novice kayak run with maneuvering around rock gardens and tight turns. The beginning of the run passes farmland, while the last six miles flows through a more remote forested area. Higher water can produce class II+-III conditions. The take-out at the Greenbrier River requires an upstream paddle or a hike to the bridge/parking area.

  • Class I-II+, 15 miles
  • River Level - Currently the gauge for Anthony has not been interpreted for whitewater levels.


Anthony Creek is in southeastern West Virginia, north of Lewisburg. The put-in at Neola (37.967220 -80.131668) makes this a 15 mile run, while putting in at Blue Bend (Google directions below), make it a 5.4 mile run. The take out is at the Anthony DNR public access (37.897060, -80.324801).
