~ Our Canoe and Kayak Trips ~
Black Springs to Arrowhead: is approximately 15 miles in length and can only be floated when the river is above 7.5 feet. We allow only kayaks on this part of the river due to the twist and bends along with tree dams and downed trees from the river banks. It's a beautiful float with no traffic and excellent small mouth bass fishing. This is considered to be two floats so we have to charge a little more just due to the drive time. NOTE: We do not mix or intermix our tubes with canoes or kayaks on any of our float trips.
Norman to Arrowhead: is 8 miles and can only be floated when the water is 6 ft. or above. Normal time to float is 3 - 5 hours. The flow has the potential to be very fast and difficult for unexperienced paddlers. At normal water levels, the flow will be insufficient. We will put you in at the public access in Norman. As you approach the Narrows (Arrowhead), along the west bank (river right), in the area known as Caddo Gap, hot springs bubble up into the river at or just below the surface. The thermal waters create a sensation uncommon on most rivers. Small rapids, great fishing, an old deteriorating swinging bridge. long narrow gravel bars, and Caddo Gap, a narrow opening where the river flows between ridges on either side, define the river's approach to Arrowhead. NOTE: We do not mix or intermix our tubes with canoes or kayaks on any of our float trips.
Arrowhead to Glenwood: our most popular float by far. It is 7.8 miles and takes 4-6 hours, depending on stops. It starts at our campgrounds with rock gardens that are fun in high water, but which will stop a boat suddenly when the water runs low. When the flow is not too much, this stretch of the river provides excellent small mouth bass fishing along with catfishing. Small rapids, long gravel bars, willow thickets and moderate pools in length define the river's approach to Glenwood. Minimum water level for the float level is normally around 5.3 feet in height. Above 6.5 feet we only allow kayaks on this portion of the river. NOTE: We do not mix or intermix our tubes with canoes or kayaks on any of our float trips.
Glenwood to Amity 182 Landing: is 8 miles of river where the rapids become tamer and the pools lengthen. The gravel bars along the riverbanks make excellent primitive campsites for overnight trips. Normal float time is 4-7 hours. Additional charges apply for this float. NOTE: We do not mix or intermix our tubes with canoes or kayaks on any of our float trips.
Glenwood to Baker's Rock (Private Property): We flost this 3 miles of river when the river can no longer support the upper float which is normally around the 5' 1" to the 5' 2" level. Normal float time is 2-3 hours. NOTE: We do not mix or intermix our tubes with canoes or kayaks on any of our float trips.
