West Okement: Dam to Okehampton Castle

Grade 3 (4-)
Length 5 km
Paddleable medium to spate

in Dartmoor ยท South West


Fun continuous grade 3 run. Watch out for two tight slots below 3 ledge drops just after the railway bridge.

Water Levels

Flow is controlled by the dam at the top so remains reasonable even in spate conditions, and runs for a few days after rain.

Takeout at Okehampton Castle where there is plenty of parking. Putin just below the dam, reached by heading west along the B3260 from the castle.
