 "We stayed in the YURT and it was pretty amazing! Soooo nicely built and decorated! We rented a canoe and had a really good time floating the river. The accommodations and customer service could not have been better! Great group of people. Really friendly people and Gypsy is the sweetest pupper dog 🐶Highly recommend!"

 My wife and daughter and I stayed in the Yurt and floated the river. It was the perfect getaway for relaxation and family time. The Yurt was assembled, built and finished by the owners. They are clearly master carpenters. The place is extremely nice, with tongue and groove finished walls and trim and other extremely tasteful and elegant finishing touches. Everyone we’ve met in person or talked to on the phone has been excessively helpful and friendly. The river takes about 3.5 hours to float. We took our time, fished for small mouth, circled back to spots that looked fishy, enjoyed a couple cold beverages, and stopped on the rock beaches for lunch and laughs. You could speed through it faster or lolly gag it longer. Highly recommend CRCCR. Great experience all around.  ~Jason Gibert

Note From The Owners

Caddo River Camping and Canoe Rental, LLC in Glenwood, Arkansas provides canoe, kayak, and tube floats on the upper section of the Caddo River above Lake DeGray, surrounded by the beautiful Ouachita Mountains of Southwest Arkansas.

The Caddo is an ideal river for all levels of floating experience.  The typical pool-and-drop river is gentle enough for novice paddlers yet with enough Class I and II rapids along the way to keep it exciting! 

For over 33 years, our floaters have enjoyed the most convenient location on the Caddo River for check-in, parking, and access to the river.  We offer different routes that are based upon the current water levels at the time of your visit. On our 7.5 mile Caddo Gap route, your trips completes at your vehicle. On our other low water route, we will have shuttle drivers bring you back to your vehicle. We strive to optimize your experience based on the current river conditions at the time of your visit.  

Our goal is to make your trip a safe, enjoyable, and memorable one for you and your family.  We carry a variety of supplies for your camping, floating, and fishing trip here so you don't have to worry if you forget something.  Bottom line, there is a lot of fun to discover on this river, and we're here to help make that happen!
