Canoe and Camping Info and Policies
Canoe reservations are highly recommended for everyone on weekends and for groups during the week. Canoe trips paid in advance will guarantee your canoes until 11:00 am on float date.
Saturday floats start at 7:00 am and run until about 4:00 pm unless arrangements are made for a later time.
Sunday through Friday floats start at 9:00 am and run until about 2:00 pm unless arrangements are made for earlier or later times.
Money received for reserved canoes will be refunded if partial or all canoes are canceled 10 days prior to float date. Refunds or rescheduling are available if the river is at flood stage.
You, the renter, are responsible for your party members and all rented equipment. Use good judgement on the water. Don't over-estimate your abilities on the river. Please do not hesitate to ask our staff for canoeing tips and conditions and be prepared for rain or shine. A Release must be signed for all rented equipment.
Ice, drinks, snacks, lotion, rain gear, sunglasses, etc. are available at the office store.
Camping is on a first come first serve basis. We have many shady spots equipped with water and electric hookups. We also have large beach areas with shallow swimming for children. All visitors must register at the office or with the gate attendant. If you are a late night arrival, please set up quietly and pay in the morning. Quiet hours are from 10:30 pm to 8:00 am. Please limit noise at your campsite.
We want everyone to have a great time so please respect your camping neighbor and the beautiful surroundings.Please keep the park clean. No littering. Speed limit 5-10 mph. Stay clear of loose beach gravel and the river
Dogs: Due to liability issues we no longer allow dogs at Elk River Floats or Wayside Campground.
No firearms or fireworks. Keep music within your camp. Respect the trees, don't chop, nail or saw. Hang lanterns so they don't burn trunks and branches; they're giving you shade.
No glass in campground or on river.
