Summer is Floating Season in Pulaski County!

Canoes by Garden State Hiker

Image by Flckr user Garden State Hiker

You may have heard about the flooding that took place late April along the Big Piney and Gasconade Rivers in Pulaski County. Luckily, for those of us who love to canoe, kayak, and tube, Pulaski County’s outfitters are a resilient bunch. In true Ozark fashion they began cleaning up their campgrounds and rivers as soon as the waters receded. This weekend paddlers across the state can enjoy their hard work and efforts by floating our scenic streams.

Support Missouri’s river outfitters this weekend by booking a float with your family and friends.
