WHAT IS A "FLOAT" TRIP?
A canoe trip on the beautiful Current River with Running River Canoe Rental has become a tradition among many families and groups from throughout the Midwest and beyond.

A primary reason for this is that each "float trip" is different and creates its own memories. The free flowing river is endlessly changing as it silently and effortlessly carries your canoe along, thereby making each visit a new and unique outdoor experience.

This is especially true when canoeing the Current River. You often find yourself drifting along on the crystal clear water watching fish swim 12 feet beneath your canoe while spectacular limestone bluffs tower high above you, and each bend in the river adds a new experience to your outdoor adventure. The wildlife and fish, the caves and springs, the logs and rootwads, the rocks, rapids and rushing water all combine to make each canoe trip a special event and treasured memory.

Running River Canoe Rental can arrange Current River canoe trips for families and groups of any size from 1 day (10-miles) up to 7 days (100 miles). Please see the rate schedule for recommended canoe trips and costs.

CAMPING IN THE AREA
The National Park Service maintains developed campgrounds at Pulltite and Round Spring on the Upper Current River. Individual campsites and group campsites can be reserved by contacting RESERVE USA (1-877-444-6777). Running River Canoe Rental offers "pickup and return" shuttle bus transportation to these campgrounds for our floaters.

In addition, Running River has a small, attractive, modem campground with hot showers, electric sites, full-hookup RV sites, tent and group campsites and a well-stocked convenience store at our business location on Highway 19. These campsites are available to our floaters by advance reservation.

Camping is also permitted on the many gravel bars along the Current River. There is presently no charge for "gravel bar" camping. This type of primitive camping on the river can make an extended canoe trip into a near wilderness experience and the following precautions should be practiced.

An approved lifejacket (PFD)) should be worn at all times when canoeing. Diving from trees, rocks. and bluffs into shallow water can cause serious injuries. JUST DON'T DO IT!

NO GLASS CONTAINERS AND STYROFOAM COOLERS ARE PERMITTED ON THE RIVER!

All Ozark streams are subject to flooding during extreme weather conditions, and care should be taken in selecting a campsite along the river. Always have a planned escape route directly to higher ground in the event of high water and never attempt to canoe the river in flood.

Please help to keep our river clean by burying human waste at least 100 feet from the water's edge, and carry your trash out to the next major river access point.

REMEMBER: NO GLASS CONTAINERS. NO STYROFOAM COOLERS.
