Austin Park to Keosauqua Boat Ramp
Cost: $5 per boat
Paddle down the Des Moines River as we hear the river’s biography from its geologic origins to its present-day status and everything in between! Participants will stop several times to hear various parts of the river’s history as we explore all it has offered our great state. The paddle is open to everyone, however children under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Paddle registration is limited to 20 boats. Jefferson County Conservation has several kayaks which participants may pre-register to borrow.
This is an official Des Moines River Water Trails event cosponsored by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and Jefferson County Conservation. The Des Moines River Water Trail is one of 19 official water trails in Iowa.
