Guided Canoe Tour: Overnight Trip in Perry County

October 26, 2019 @ 8:00 am - October 27, 2019 @ 5:00 pm UTC-6

$20 – $40

But instead of crawling out of the river at the end of the day, we find a sand bar, pitch tents, cook a meal, and spend the night by a campfire. Soaking up an entirely different kind of experience on the river is great fun. You must provide your own camping gear and food.
