Boiling Creek is a spectacular waterway that flows entirely on Eglin AFB. The water is crystal clear with flowing grasses. The creek is relatively narrow, about 25 feet wide or so, with very few places to get out of your boat. Trip length about 6.6 miles.

(Boiling Creek and Yellow River) Beautiful, clear creek with a fairly deep channel that gives the paddler the feeling of paddling in an aquarium. Route lined with beautiful pitcher plants, water lillies and cypress trees. Yellow River is murkey, drab and half the trip.

Are there beaches along the creek to camp and is camping even allowed? Thanks!

This stream is truly remarkable. Very pristine. If you are lucky, you will get to see the sturgeon jumping and rolling in the area at the end of Boiling where it flows into the Yellow River. These fish are huge and when they splash back into the water it sounds like a shotgun going off. Sometimes they are five feet in length. The most we ever saw was in June. Beware the lunch spot. Barbara paddled up and saw a wild pig sneaking up on me as I ate. This stream has loads of surprises.
