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.
TUBES DO NOT FLOAT THE SAME ROUTE AS CANOES!

This is our most popular float by far! It is 7.5 miles and takes approximately 4-5 hours. Most convenient route.
When the water is too low for the Caddo Gap route above, we use an alternate low water route that is 4 miles long.
This alternate route is a great little trip when the water is too low for the upper section in Caddo Gap. It is 4 miles and takes about 2-3 hours. It is a great sections to teach younger kids to paddle. This has become a favorite of some of our customers during the peak summer months.
This route 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. Takes 4-7 hours. Available on Sunday-Friday. This one is not available on Saturday's during May-August.
