Float the crystal clear waters of the Courtois Creek back to Ozark Outdoors Riverfront Resort. Relax for 5 miles in any of our boats, or paddle a 10, 14, or 18 mile canoe or kayak trip.
The Courtois River offers creek water, with a few more adventurous turns, than the Meramec River trips. Like most Missouri waterways, the depth of the Courtois fluctuates. Just as dry land has peaks and valleys, so do Missouri stream-beds. One instant you’re in water to your ankles, and a step later, you could be wet to your shoulders. Water temps change with the intensity of the sun and air temperature.
Rental includes transportation to the put-in location, paddling gear, cushions, and Coast Guard approved PFD’s for most children ages 2 to 11 years old. If you have a child under the age of 2, or if you are concerned about appropriate fit, please bring a personal floatation device for your child with you. PFD’s available for youth 12 and over, and adults, upon request. **Please ask your driver before the van or bus leaves our property.
