Beginners should take a short trip of 3 to 5 hours without
small children. Under normal water conditions, that would be from the Atterbury
boat ramp to the livery. This is also one of our more popular trips for
experienced river runners. We shuttle you by bus or van to the boat ramp and
your trip ends at the livery.
This very popular trip
begins at Furnas Mill dam and ends at the livery. Once again, we shuttle you
from the livery to the input. The first part of the trip flows through a state
wildlife preserve, then on through four miles of Camp Atterbury Wilderness
Area, ending at the livery. You feel as if you're far from civilization while
you're actually less than a mile from state highway 31.
This is an excellent choice for those
hardy souls who wish to make a weekend of it. You will paddle 2 days and camp
overnight in our campground.
have 2 sizes of rafts that can handle as many as six people depending on total
weight. Rafts are ideal for families or groups that want a peaceful float trip
with a lot of togetherness. The rafts are available during high and normal
water conditions only.
After extended periods of heavy rain we sometimes experience very
high water or flood conditions in which we close the livery. It's a good idea
to call us a day ahead to check water conditions. Sometimes we close the livery
to canoeing and kayaking but may run the rafts.
