This is not meant as an advertisement but my concern for the safety of canoeists. Finishing this trip at the Hwy 69 bridge is dangerous. There is no place to park and a difficult place to exit. We are 1/2 km further on down the river and offer our facilities at River Haven resort to the canoeists. Parking, pullout, shuttle service and more.
