Wash State Park Float?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to plan a float with friends in a couple of weeks.  I'm looking for a 4-6hr float and we will be bringing our own canoes/kayaks but may need to rent some.  If we take out at Washington State Park, would this make for a good float?  Fishing-wise? Recreation wise?

 

Thanks in advance for your recommendations.

If you are taking out at the park where are you putting in?  From the 21 bridge to the park certainly will not take 4 to 6 hours unless you want it to.  From the park down to Mammoth may be better for you but you need to check with the park about canoe rentals.

Washington state park canoe rental will put you in up at Blackwell but they will usually only do that if there is decent water levels.  It's a 7 miler though and would probably take longer than 6 hours if you are fishing hard.

21 bridge to the park is less than 3 miles, probably too short. Blackwell to the park is actually closer to 9 miles, regardless of what the paddling guide says—Oz Hawksley. made a mistake there, one of two mistakes I found on the mileages in his original book, and it’s never been corrected. Blackwell to 21 is closer to what you’re looking for but not sure if the park canoe rental will do it. Also not sure they do the park to Mammoth float, and it’s no more than three miles. 21 to Mammoth would be about perfect if they would do that one.

I have seen them do the Blackwell to 21.  I have seen some one picking people up at Mammoth, some outfitter, I assume the park people.  So for what Twigss wants it seems like the Blackwell to 21 or the 21 to Mammoth if the guy that does the canoe rentals will do either.  Of course it depends alot on how fast they want to go and how many stops they want to make.  Three miles isn't bad for 4 hours with a long lunch and some swimming along the way.

As far as recreation, I prefer naked servants keeping me hydrated and healthy.

Ask the Park, they will set you up.

I asked the park for that amenity once and wasn't allowed back for five years............
