2023 MWA Whitewater Championships

The Missouri Whitewater Association puts on an incredibly well organized race weekend each year on the Saint Francis River, about an hour south of St. Louis. The CWA has a long history of participating, and several of our boaters do very well in the competition. There are slalom races, a boater-cross and a downriver race on an amazing river that has fantastic scenery and easy logistics. This is a great one to attend even if you don't want to race. The river ranges from straightforward class 2 on the upper reach, to class 3 on the race course at normal flows. Camping is right at the take out at Silver Mines Recreation Area.
