I am getting tired of going to Raccoon Creek State Park all the time. Where can I go kayaking?

I live in Beaver County as well (in Monaca) and I have paddled bits of Raccoon Creek. There is a suitable put-in spot about 2 miles up from the mouth of the creek that you can access from Raccoon Creek Rd (off of Rt. 18, just past the bridge that crosses the creek). Besides the Ohio and Beaver Rivers, I have taken my kayak out to Little Beaver Creek just past Midland, almost to East Liverpool (Ohio). There is a recreational park with a boat launch just off of Calcutta-Smith Ferry Road (off the right side going west on PA Rt 68). I've found that you can't get too far up either creek (less than 5 miles) before you would have to portage shallow rapids.
