Description

Named after the natural springs that feed its waters, Spring River Canoe Trails is one of two rivers that merge to form Grand River, which flows in to Grand Lake at Twin Bridges State Park. Fishing opportunities abound for largemouth bass, white bass, hybrid stripers, crappie, channel and flathead catfish all swimming the cold, clear waters.

A 22-mile stretch of this mostly Class I river is a great spot for canoeing, kayaking and rafting. It can be enjoyed by float trip enthusiasts of all ages and has several public access points. Lined by forests, cliffs, rock formations and bright green trees in the summer, Spring River Canoe Trails is a hidden gem. Ideal for kayaking and canoeing beginners, the water is mainly calm and quiet with only a few places the current picks up on extended voyages.

Mr. Bowling, Due to serious flooding issues in December on the Spring River the Bicentennial State Park is closed. You are welcome to use Josephine Smith State Park or Twin Bridges State Park to fish or launch a boat. If you have further questions feel free to call our office at 918-542-6969

I went to the park today 3/7/2015 and it was closed does anyone know when it is going to be open?

Damon, Spring River Canoe Trails used to be open for primitive camping, but it is a day use only park now. We're sorry for the confusion and have updated the description to reflect the new information. There is tent camping available nearby at the Twin Bridges Area at Grand Lake State Park for $12 per night. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Damon on 12/22/15

The site mentioned primitive camping. Where is it located and how much does it cost?

Karen, we're happy to report that the park is open. It was temporarily locked over the holiday weekend. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!

We wanted to kayak at this park over the Independence Day weekend but found it to be closed. Is it permanently closed or will it reopen soon? Thanks.
