There will be three floats to chose from.One from Twin Bridge's camp down to Blair Bridge that one is a long one 14 mile's,the 2nd is from Hamond Camp to Blair Bridge that one is 10 miles.And the other is from Hale's Crossing back to Twin Bridge's and that one is 8 mile's and it a very laid back float no fast water.Its more of a fishing float..My self I'm going to do Twin Bridge's to Blair bridge's.I will let everyone make up theit own minds up as this thread continues on.

The North Fork of the White combines a relatively constant flow of clear water from large springs with some of the best whitewater in the Missouri Ozarks. Since its upper reaches are in Mark Twain National Forest, it retains some wilderness character and has good watershed protection. The section from Hwy. 14 to Hwy. H is near-wilderness and includes some fine stands of short-leaf pine as well as several large springs. Old mills and a number of National Forest recreation areas enhance the attractiveness of the area for vacationers. Indeed, this river has high-quality recreation value equal to any in the Ozarks.

Hey Bryon...am going to do everything in my power to try and make this one...but question...you included kids rates....does that mean families and children are welcome? How many actually bring such, if so?? (I am hoping for an adult only camp/float)

Kat no one brought their young one's last time .some came with thier adult kids .
What I did was copy and pasted twin bridge's price list and and the kid price's were all ready on it so I didn't bother to delit it.And I din't expect any young kids but it's posible for some to bring thier adult kids(drinking age kids LOL)
By all means Kat try to make it this river is a hell of alot of fun and it's not nearly as crouded as the Meremec will be over the laybor Day weekend.The camp ground we will be staying at is the only out fitter that puts in where we will put in at .we will have the first 5 miles of the river will basicly be all to our selfs So come on down and spread the word this is a good float river with a lots of bouncy bouncy's and slsplish splash's

Hey I've never done anything POF stuff but I would love to get one camping trip in at least this summer. I will need a canoe partner also. Oh & I am relatively competent in the canoe. A lill rusty maybe...lol I don't drink & party but I love to laugh & goof off around the fire. Will I fit in? Also how do you guys handle a kitchen set up & food? Is it all for yourself or do you work together? I have a sweet fold out kitchen from cabellas with a sink & pantries...lol. We could build a community kitchen around it. Well now I have to go & figure the money?

Hope to be there,

Tara

Yeah well, we all know I can't paddle and balancing seems to a bit of a problem when in canoe with Gina......... guess I better get busy and find us some partners huh? don't worry too much girls it's really not that hard on this river or at least it wasn't the last time I went.......then again I didn't have to paddle much so maybe we'll get lucky and find some experienced paddlers

Thank you for welcoming me. The plans so far sound great. I'm still checking the money reserves so I haven't officially signed up. I looked at the camp web site & it looks very nice. I see that they have showers on premises so I won't have to lug mine. I also see that they have packages with meals. That might be fun to try sometime in the future also. Well looking forward to meeting you all & keeping my fingers crossed about funds.
