THE RIVER

The South Branch averages 1 ½ to 3 feet deep, the current flows approximately four miles per hour with no white water rapids. The South Branch is a clear, cool spring fed river. Canoeing, kayaking and tubing are safe and fun for people of all ages and levels of experience. Children under six must wear a life jacket.

FOR YOUR SAFETY AND ENJOYMENT

Remember to bring sun screen, bug spray, drinks, bungee cords and a trash bag.
We do not recommend that you take cell phones, cameras, keyless remotes, wallets or purses unless they are in a water proof container.
To help us keep the river clean and beautiful, please do not bring Styrofoam coolers, glass containers or jello shots.
Canoes do tip on occasion; have a way to secure your car key, please keep all trash and empty cans in a container tied to your canoe.
Plan to pack your trash out with you as there are no trash containers at landings.
Important: All boats and tubes need to be off the river by 6:00 p.m.
