Marble Creek: Marble Creek Campground to Madison County Highway 427 Professional Review and Guide

"Marble Creek is the alternate whitewater run for the intermediate paddler when the St. Francis is nearing flood stage or higher. This medium-sized creek alternates between fast-moving pools, tight willow-lined chutes, and small drops and ledges. Almost the entire creek is protected by the Mark Twain National Forest, enhancing the water quality and scenery tremendously. Paddlers can expect a relatively remote run on this short but exciting creek.

Immediately below the put-in is a 5-foot dam. Scout first and run it center or far left. The rapid below the dam leads to a pool that circles around Marble Creek Campground. After going nearly full circle, the river turns left. A roar signals Bridge Rapid. Go right of a diagonal ledge that nearly spans the river. Work left as you paddle under the SR E bridge."
