What to wear and bring:
Water shoes and old tennis shoes work best. The river is rocky so you’ll want shoes with few holes. Flip Flops do not work well in the river as they get washed away very easily (Just check out our “tree of soles” at the end of your trip) comfortable lose clothings and bathing suits are best as you will probably want to enjoy the river. Don’t forget the sunscreen! We have small child sized life vest available but if you have one that fits your little ones well we suggest you bring one that you’ll know they’ll be comfortable in. We do have plenty adutly life jackets. Coolers are allowed (no styrofoam please ands no glass bottles) Pack your lunch and have a picnic by the river. There are plenty of places to stop along the way for a swim and a snack! If you plan on taking a phone or personal effects you may not want to get wet, we suggest that you invest in a water proof case or at the very least a few plastic sandwhich bags offer some protection from the water… just remember…if you take it with you on the river… it will get wet!
We look forward to having you out and making your canoe trip the best it can be! If you have any more questions we can answer please give us a call in the office!
The Red River is considered a Class I and II river, and is moderately shallow with sandy beaches and a rock bottom. There are several small sandbars midway down the course, so bring your picnic basket.
