Note From The Owners

Caddo River Camping and Canoe Rental, LLC in Glenwood, Arkansas provides canoe, kayak, and tube floats on the upper section of the Caddo River above Lake DeGray, surrounded by the beautiful Ouachita Mountains of Southwest Arkansas.

The Caddo is an ideal river for all levels of floating experience.  The typical pool-and-drop river is gentle enough for novice paddlers yet with enough Class I and II rapids along the way to keep it exciting! 

For over 33 years, our floaters have enjoyed the most convenient location on the Caddo River for check-in, parking, and access to the river.  We offer different routes that are based upon the current water levels at the time of your visit. On our 7.5 mile Caddo Gap route, your trips completes at your vehicle. On our other low water route, we will have shuttle drivers bring you back to your vehicle. We strive to optimize your experience based on the current river conditions at the time of your visit.

"My wife and I floated the Caddo for the first time this past Saturday, and I wanted to thank everyone there for a great experience!  The river was beautiful, the canoes were in good shape, and everyone from the front desk to the river were all very nice.  We can’t wait to come back for another float!  We also enjoyed the festival downtown before we left!  One of the most enjoyable trips we’ve taken. Thank you so much!"
