The Landing offers several overnight camping float trips by canoe or raft ranging from one night out to five nights out. Departure times for overnight trips will be arranged on an individual basis and should be arranged at least three days before your departure date.
Overnight canoeing and rafting trips should be undertaken only by experienced floaters. All of the these trips take you through very remote areas and there are very few communication areas such as cell phone service, public phones, restrooms, or stores. It is possible that you could be affected by inclimate weather, etc. Remember that you cannot be picked up after you set out from your put-in point, so plan accordingly with food, water, clothing and shelter.
