My camera lens fell in the creek. I am drying it out with a paper towel around it, in a bowl of rice. Is there anymore I can do?

Do not dry it with paper towel. The paper will scratch up the lens. Only ever use microfiber cloths. But no there's nothing else really. If it turns out moisture got in between the lenses then you'll need to take it to a repair shop. But your main focus is drying out the mechanisms, especially if it's a motorized lens.

Blow dry it and put in bowl of rice for days. Do not use it until it is really dry.
