Shady Beach is an ideal location for your float trip on the Elk River!
All our float trips start upriver so that you float right back into Shady Beach - no waiting for a ride back to the campground!
Nothing can compare to a day long float on the Elk River. The Elk River is rated a class I-II, making it ideal for beginners or just a relaxing, laid back day for the experienced. The Elk River offers beautiful scenery with many gravel bar "rest stops" and swimming holes to enjoy. The many natural springs along the Elk River, Indian Creek and Big Sugar keep the water cool but comfortable and running year round for canoeing, rafting, kayaking and tubing fun. With clean, cool, clear water, no one can resist getting their feet wet!
