High Water Precautions

During periods of elevated flow (flooding) on the Wapsipinicon River, we observe strict safety procedures for allowing rental watercraft on the water. Even minor high-water events may cause cancellation of canoe shuttle trips and/or restricting vessels to backwater (those with no current) areas of the park. 


Utilization of any watercraft available from the Linn County Conservation Department requires a signed rental agreement prior to authorization for use. Users of all Linn County Conservation watercraft must abide by all State Laws & Boating Regulations as determined by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.  No pets or glass allowed in any vessel.
