June 15-16, 2019 the Bluff City Canoe Club paddled comfortably at river stage approximately 4.23 feet. 

On 6/10/2020 the river stage was 6.27 feet and considered too high.  The ramps at Greer Crossing and Riverton were flooded.  On 6/11/2020 the river had dropped to 5.50 and the outfitter was putting boats onto the river.

Camping on the river
According to Paul Beebe, there are two really nice places to camp other than the designated river campsites.  The first is just past Whitten access on river left.  It is less than 1/4 mile past Whitten.  I have it marked on a map. The other is a mile or two past Whitten on river right.  The best I can remember, it is past White's Creek float camp.  Both sites have ample space for tents as well as suitable trees for us tree dwellers (hammock campers).  Since they are not designated campsites they do no have a picnic table or latrine.

There are several restaurants within walking distance of the rental cabins in Alton.  As I recall, the Hometown Cafe was the preferred place for Friday night dinner.  Saturday morning breakfast has usually been potluck in the rented cabins.
