Uncle Scotts Outfitters.
While the Outfitters provide everything including transportation up stream. If you want to do it on your own. We have Tubes, Cooler Tubes, Life Jackets, Kayak's and Paddle rentals. We also have maps and instructions. If interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request availabilty and/or to make a reservation. The cost is $5 for each Tube, $5 for each Life Jacket. and $10 for each Cooler Tube. For the long float, you will need to provide your own transportation to haul the tubes, coolers, kayaks and yourselves upstream. A long bed pick-up truck will carry about 6 tubes each load and you will need rope to tie them down. If you have a large group and only one pick-up. You will need to make multiple trips. This float will last about 4 to 5 hours to float back down to Riverwest Beach (12 minutes to drive upstream and drop of tubes). The Short float will start at Riverwest Beach and go downstream to the West Dodge public access area (10 minutes to drive downstream and drop off car). You will need a vehicle parked down stream to get back to Riverwest Park when done. This float will take about an hour. You can also deflate the tubes when done and return them to us (you won't need a pick up truck for the short float). We will give you instruction and map for entry and exit points on river. Also, with reservations, we can refer you to someone (like UBER) that can give you a ride to pick-up or drop off a car at one of public access enrty or exit points from the river. The cost for this ride is $20. Email your requests to email@example.com
