Paddling Little Sioux

The Inkpaduta Canoe Trail on the Little Sioux runs from Spencer, in Clay County, Iowa, to Smithland, in southern Woodbury County. This span of river is approximately 134 miles in length. The Trail area is characterized by safe, convenient public access areas in each county. 

The Cherokee County Conservation Board maintains 12 river access areas from the northern county border to the southern. (Click here and scroll down to Canoeing/Kayaking to find maps of those accesses.) These various access points permit paddlers to experience a relaxing 1-4 hour float or to escape for a camping and floating adventure over 3 or more days.        

Contact us at 712-225-6709 to rent our canoes and kayaks. We rent our canoe/kayak trailer and all of the equipment for $200/event. Trailer and equipment should be used within county or surrounding area. Individual canoes and kayaks are not available for rent.
