Relax Along Our Riverways….

Float our peaceful rivers in central Missouri

Wide-open rivers await you, and Pulaski County outfitters are ready to assist you.  Pack your river bag with essentials, wading shoes, sunscreen, snacks, and drinks.  For those that enjoy fishing, pack your gear, find that fishing hole, and reel in a trophy bass.  Our friendly outfitters will provide the rest!  Choose your vessel of choice, safety vests, and litter bags are included. Your outfitter of choice will settle you in at the drop-off point, and you will climb aboard!  Sink in and relax.  Take in the scenic river views.  Wash away the worries of everyday life.  Watch for wildlife, turtles sunning, deer, birds, and the beautiful dragonflies.  Stop along the riverbank and spend some time swimming, skipping rocks, and enjoying nature.

At the endpoint pull the vessel to the bank and head on over to your home base lodging to rest up and grab a delicious meal as one of Pulaski’s many restaurants.   After a peaceful day on the river, head back for a great night of sleep.

Pulaski County’s Riverways

Plan a few days along Pulaski’s pristine riverways.  Each river and section offer different views and experience. It is important to watch river levels prior to floating. If you plan to fish be familiar with Missouri fishing regulations.

The Gasconade River is wider and moves slightly faster.  The Northern-eastern section runs along bluff areas and rural homes.  With the western section gliding throughout farmlands ending at the Route 66, Gasconade Bridge near Hazelgreen.  Just north of Waynesville, above the confluence of the Roubidoux Creek, takes you along a 5-mile float.

The southern section of the Big Piney near Duke, MO affords views of breathtaking bluffs, or float the central to northern section weaving through Devils Elbow off Route 66. 

Canoes, Kayaks, and More

Float trip excursions are available for beginners with shorter 3–4-hour experiences to multi-day adventures for the advanced.  Most outfitters offer a variety of vessels.  The traditional canoe for 2, rafts for the family or to relax and dip your toes and fingers as you float along.  Kayaks (double and single) are a huge hit with friends.  String together inner tubes and lazily float along.  Or for those with grace and balance, try a paddleboard!

In planning your getaway – experience the various sections of our riverways.  Or, come back often and try them all!
