Overnight Canoe Trips


Primitive camping sites on the river are available ONLY to boaters and canoeists travelling from one access point to another when the distance is too great to be covered in one day.

Campsites are limited to a one-night stay, and are on a first-come, first-served basis. Canoe campsites are open all year unless the river is closed due to an emergency. At present there are no fees and no reservation system.
