We are floating with the Riversedge Campground & canoe livery in Lesterville MO. Phone: 573-637-2422
The portage fee for private boats is $15 for kayaks & $20 for canoes. They rent canoes for $46 (kayaks for $35), for those of us who need boats. They take credit cards & cash.
We need to leave Silvermines at NO LATER THAN 9:30 am and meet at 10:30 at Riversedge to load and catch the 11 am bus. It’s a 45 minute drive from Silvermines to Riversedge. So start arranging driving shuttles before 9:30 am!
Following the float, we’ll have our catered Dinner at 6pm at the Silvermines Riverside pavilion.
The MWA Annual Meeting will occur at 7pm after dinner at the pavilion.
We’ll have a group campfire at the D-bridge takeout parking lot firering.
See you this weekend.
Directions to Rivers Edge: West on 72 to Ironton/Arcadia, South on 21 to Lesterville. “Watch carefully as you need to take a RIGHT to stay on 21 South (just before the two giant smoke stacks). Turn LEFT at Lenny’s convenience store onto Peola Road (if you go into downtown Lesterville on 21 South you have gone too far). At stop sign take RIGHT and go over the Black River bridge. Continue about 1 mile until you come to the Riversedge entrance on the left hand side. If you go past Wilderness Lodge Resort, then you have gone too far again. Once you pull in to the campground, please check in at the main office.”
