Long Description:
From the website:

Caddo River Camping & Canoe Rental Inc. provide canoe, kayak, and tube floats on the upper section of the Caddo River above Lake DeGray, in Glenwood, Arkansas.

The Caddo is an ideal river for all levels of floating experience. The river is peaceful, at least in some places but to prevent paddlers from becoming too complacent there are a number of Class I and Class II rapids along the way to keep it fun!

Since 1982 we continue to provide the most convenient location on the river to check-in, park, and have your vehicle there waiting for you at your take-out at the end of your trip. While other floaters will often get confused or forget where exactly their takeout location is, having your vehicle there by the river makes for an obvious and convenient landmark! Furthermore, you don't have to worry about how long you'll need to wait for someone to pick you up and bring you back to your vehicle at the end of the day!

You'll also find that we consistently maintain the newest fleet of boats on the river each year due to our large sale of used canoes and kayaks in the fall. We try and keep our rental equipment from feeling like "rental equipment"! We also have three (3) conveniently located properties right on the river if you're coming to camp-out, plus an air-conditioned bunkhouse, full bathhouse facilities, and we even offer the best fully furnished cabins you'll find on the Caddo - guaranteed.

New for 2006 was the addition of our Caddo Combat Paintball field, where adrenalin and accuracy are put to the test in this wild "hi-tech" game of tag. We have everything you need to play, so don't be shy, give it a try! And finally, the convenience of our concession stand, the Caddo Café, will help take care of the need for a quick bite while you're here! Enjoy an ice cream or sno-cone as you relax by the river and watch the people float on by. Or grab a burger or any number of menu items we have as you come off the river and get ready to head back for the day.

Our goal is to make your trip a safe, enjoyable, and memorable one for you and your family. We carry a variety of supplies for your camping and floating/fishing trip here so you don't have to worry if you forgot something. Bottom line, there is a lot of fun to discover on this river, and we're here to help make that happen, because we know how to do it best! Whether you're calling for information, or would like to book a trip, please don't hesitate to give us a shout.
