There’s nothing like spending a fun and relaxing day on the river with family and friends. That’s why Missouri float trips are such a great idea when the weather gets warm. And whether you’re from the Oakville and Mehlville area, or traveling through there are plenty of places near and far where you can enjoy a great time on the water. So, here are some of the best float trip ideas in Missouri!

Big Piney River

Big Piney River is known for not only being a prime location to bring your canoe and enjoy your time on the water, but also a great opportunity to get some fishing done as well. Those who drift down the river can enjoy scenic cliff and huge strong pine trees along with the river’s clear blue water. You’ll also notice that the river’s water levels can change depending on the time of year, so take caution when visiting during times with a higher water level.

Gasconade River

Gasconade River is one of the largest rivers that run all throughout the state. It spans 280 miles long with so many twists and turns that it’s referred to as one of the most crooked rivers in the country. This route is perfect for spending a day on the water and soaking up all that the Ozarks have to offer. It’s also a great location where you can set sail on your boat during certain times of the year

Current River

Current River is a great spot if you’re looking to do some canoeing. As visitors make their way along the river they can discover plenty of large limestone spring for swimming and caves for exploring. There are also plenty of historical nature sites to see including Alley Spring, Round Spring, and Big Spring.

North Folk River

North Folk River is another expansive river to enjoy the sites and sounds that only Missouri can offer. As you make your way down its 109 miles of water you can take detours at other river meeting points or explore reservoirs along the way. Be sure to look out for an old renovated gristmill alongside the river to see how our ancestors enjoyed life on the water.
