The Playspot in Petersburg section on Sangamon is a nearby class III whitewater section, 0.1 miles long. This section of Sangamon is suitable for whitewater paddlers who have been whitewater kayaking and rafting for a period of time but who are not yet ready for the exceptionally treacherous rapids. Always check restrictions before you go whitewater kayaking and rafting given that whitewater
kayaking and rafting is a treacherous pastime. You donít have to go far from Lake Petersburg to see the water at Lake Petersburg Dam.
