FAQ Policies Plan Your Trip

Our float trips start upstream and float back to camp. 

On Saturdays you can stop at either Sycamore Landing or at River Ranch.  We offer an 8 mile and a 5 mile float trip.  The 8 mile is the most popular for a full day on the river.  The 5 mile can be made to last all day if you choose to make several stops.  We offer both plastic and aluminum canoes.

5mi float: first trip 8:00am, cut off is 2:00pm.
8mi float: first trip 8:00am, cut off is 11:30am.
