 CANOEING
   


For friends and family, church and scout groups, beginners and experts alike, all will enjoy the Caddo. The river has several really good swimming holes, and places to fish along the way, but Class I and II rapids are frequent and help do much of the "paddling" for you. In the late summer you may have to do more of the paddling yourself, but generally the Caddo stays a pretty good float, and in fact it's one of the most consistent floating rivers in Arkansas.

Do you have your own Canoe?
No problem, we provide shuttles at a fair rate.

Recommended Routes:

"Scenery along the river is excellent, with heavily forested ridges,
rock outcroppings, translucent green water, an abundance of native animal and plant life,
and excellent fishing."
- Marc W. McCord of Southwest Paddler.


Caddo Gap to Glenwood
is our most popular float by far. It is 7.5 miles and takes 4-6 hours.

Norman to Caddo Gap is 8 miles and can only be floated when the water is 6 ft. or above. The flow can be very fast and difficult for unexperienced paddlers. At normal water levels, the flow will be insufficient. 3-5 hours.

Glenwood to Amity 182 Landing is 8 miles of river where the rapids become tamer and the pools lengthen. The good gravel bars along the riverbanks make excellent primitive campsites for overnight trippers. 4-7 hours.

Amity 182 to 84 is just over 5 miles. The route requires pre-arranging, additional shuttle fees, and a specific pick-up time. This route will not be available on summer holiday weekends.

NOTE: All paddling times given are approximate and will vary according to weather, water conditions, and the progress paddlers make down the river. You may spend as long as you like paddling and enjoying your trip, but we do require all one-day trips to return rented equipment before 7:45 pm or a $25 per boat late fee is charged. Please plan your progress accordingly.
