Copyright Caddo River Camping & Canoe Rental Inc.. All rights reserved. 

For friends and family, church and scout groups, beginners and experts alike, all will enjoy the Caddo.  The river has good swimming holes, along the way. Class I and Class II rapids help do much of the "paddling" for you in early summer. In the late summer you may have to do more of the paddling yourself, but generally the Caddo stays a pretty good float, and in fact it's one of the most consistent floating rivers in Arkansas. Tube route is just over 1 mile long. Time varies from 30 minutes to 2 hours per trip, water level based.
