There’s Nothing like a Float

Float Your Way

Canoeing

One of our favorite ways to adventure down river

Kayaking

Nothing’s better than kayaking on a sunny day

Rafting

Looking for a group float? Try one of our rafts

Tubing

An even more relaxing way to float down the river

Canoeing

Canoeing in the Missouri Ozarks has become one of the most popular forms of recreation for the entire family!

Every year you will find the Huzzah River takes on a different beauty each season. Almost all of our floats on the Huzzah pass right by our campground. One of the nicest floats we offer is a one-day trip where you end up at the campground for lunch and then continue on downstream the rest of the afternoon.

Missouri’s Most Complete “Canoeing” Resort has a wide array of rental float equipment from which to choose, so you can experience the surrounding rivers from a different perspective each time!

Kayaking

Kayaks are fast, safe, stable and add a new dimension to touring the Huzzah and Courtois Rivers. Even with no training, anyone can enjoy a day on the river in a personal kayak. Couples try his-and-her kayaks for a different floating experience. Kayaks are ideal for that extra person that will not fit in your canoe or raft.

On a hot summer day, nothing is better than a float down the river! And if you’re looking to be active while doing it, kayaking is the way to go. Paddle through the cool waters on your own or with a partner as you experience everything that the River has to offer!

 

Rafting

Rafting is becoming the most favorite craft for families with small children and groups that want to stay together on the float.

Safety and security are assured on these craft. Rafts are nearly impossible to tip over, and are made of tough nylon-lined rubber, which will not tear. A raft rental includes transportation, hauling of the rafts, paddles, cushions, and lifejackets. If a raft float sound like fun, please call well in advance to book these popular crafts.

Policies

Floating is both good exercise and great fun experienced in the outdoors. As a participant you have responsibilities, one should always show courtesy to your fellow floaters, which also includes the Huzzah Valley Staff. Be aware, as with any sport there is some inherent risk that personal awareness and common sense can reduce. Never float under the influence of drugs or alcohol. We provide a litter bag with each floating vessel and keep it until the end of the trip. Observe all posted signs and warnings. We cannot assume responsibility for personal injury, medical payments or property loss or damage. You will be asked to acknowledge this by signing a liability waiver before the outing begins. The cost of your float does include: transportation, the normal use of the vessel, paddles, seat cushions, trash bags and life jackets upon request. Please treat our canoes, rafts and equipment with the same respect as if they were your own. We expect normal wear and tear on our equipment, and for that we do not charge. In the event a canoe or raft is damaged beyond normal wear and tear, then we do expect to be reimbursed in relation to the damage. If you abandon your canoe or raft or it is lost or stolen, you will be required to pay for it. If everyone follows the rules of common courtesy, every floater will have a safe and rewarding adventure.  There is a $25.00 service charge per hour per craft taking out after 7:00 pm.  No refunds for early return from float. The Missouri State Water Patrol patrols these waters. State law prohibits glass containers on the river, and there is a substantial fine!

Huzzah Valley provides room for people in rafts, not coolers, so it is very important to keep this in mind, the more you take, the less room in your raft for yourself. Also the more weight in your raft or canoe the harder it is to get downstream. No kegs will be allowed in either rafts or canoes! We recommend the following for the maximum amount of coolers (36 quart) to put in your floating vessel.

  • Canoe with 2 adults – 1 cooler
  • 4 Man Raft with 3 adults – 1 cooler
  • 6 Man Raft with 4 adults – 1 cooler
  • 8 Man Raft with 6 adults – 2 coolers
  • 10 Man Raft with 8 adults – 2-3 coolers
Cancellations must be made 10 Full days in advance in order to receive a refund minus a $20.00 service charge.  If you must cancel less than ten days in advance of your arrival you will forfeit your entire deposit. The deposit would be the total amount you have paid.
