Places to Canoe

Canoeing is the activity of paddling a canoe in a river or lake. These canoe excursions are called float trips. Canoeing usually refers exclusively to using a paddle to propel a canoe by human power. Many places provide canoe rentals to allow families or individuals the opportunity for a day or weekend canoe trip. Always wear life jackets and know the terrain before you go canoeing. This section of Backcountry Secrets is our list of places to canoe and canoeing routes. If you know of any other lakes or rivers to canoe, please share them.
