Overnight Trips

Canoe Camping by SilenteyeOvernight self-guided trips include a canoe or kayak, paddles, PFDs (personal floatation devices) and shuttle service. You provide all your own camping equipment. Visit the Choosing a Trip page for guidance in deciding which trip would be best for your group. We add trips to our Paddle Calendar as they are requested on a first come, first serve basis. Walk-ins are welcome but it is always best to register in advance to reserve your boats. Trip availability also depends on current river levels.
