8 mile:
Put in just north of Seip Earthworks at the Rt 50 bridge. Take out at the Jones Levee Rd bridge.

12 mile:
Put in at the Jones Levee Rd bridge. Take out back at camp (Shawnee)

There are two livery's that operate on the creek so it should be relatively clear of hang ups and debris.

Kerri and I scouted at both campgrounds/liveries in late spring and found no one at Waters Edge and it looked rough. The owners at Shawnee were very friendly and allowed us to pay by the person/night in a group setting. $10/ person /night was agreed upon. Restrooms and showers are available at the campground as Kerri checked again recently to make sure that they would still be available in October.
