If you'd like to make new friends who share your love of paddling, or want to learn a new river sport, then join us. Beginner or expert, single or family, young or just young at heart, if you're looking for wild whitewater exhilaration or quiet flat water floats, we look forward to paddling with you! Dallas, Texas is certainly no Mecca of river sports, but some folks who insist on living here do manage to find time and places to paddle anyway. If not the nearby flat water streams of East and North Texas, then a 3-5 hour drive to Arkansas, Oklahoma or the Hill Country will usually do the trick. There's Saturday morning "Urban Paddles", weekend or multi - day base camping and river camping trips, fishing expeditions, summertime Moonlight Floats, the Trinity River Challenge, Caddoween and much more. There are occasionally even expedition trips to The Boundary Waters, Big Bend, New Mexico, Colorado...all over the country.
Members of the Dallas Down River Club must have their own canoe or kayak to participate in scheduled events.
