This is NOT a company sponsored or organized event - just a bunch of friends getting together for a fun weekend

The PYR Family Paddling Trip is Saturday June 24, 2017.


For this event there is a group discount by booking through this website.

The route we are paddling this year is is beginner friendly and offers a variety of experiences along the way. There is some easy splash to try, an island where people can walk upstream and body surf back to their boats and fresh water springs to taste.

The Grand River averages 1 meter in depth It has 1 kilometer of easy splash that is small but fun. The river is 50-75 meters wide You can swim in the river, but wear shoes There are few biting bugs, no poisonous snakes A very beautiful wilderness setting. Lots of different birds. There is an emergency walk-out trail on the left side

Everyone will park at the end point, then be shuttled by bus to the start point upstream... from there the group will paddle back to their vehicles. At the end point (parking area) there are picnic tables, plus grilled food and icecream for sale.

Each family will be responsible for their own boat reservation. There is the choice of canoes, kayaks, tandem kayaks, non-tip tandem yaks, rafts or bring your own boat to get shuttled if needed. Please bring your own lunch.
