What we're about

If you are looking for a group to enjoy paddling adventures on the water or learn new skills, we are the club for you! North Texas River Runners is a chapter of the Arkansas Canoe Club and is affiliated with the American Canoe Kayak SUP Raft Rescue Association (ACA). We are about helping our members develop their kayaking skills while discovering the joys of outdoor water adventures. Our members include all levels of ACA certified instructors as well as regular folks who love being on the water. We do both white water and flat water adventures and welcome everyone from beginning paddlers to advanced white-water daredevils. Our club was formed in 1986. To become an official member of the club, the dues are $25 for individual or family, but to join on meetup and receive notification of events there is no charge. We do request that those who attend 3 or more events pay the nominal dues to become an official member of the club.

Sunset Paddle (Flat Water)

Needs a location

It looks like the wind is finally going to allow us to do another Sunset Paddle to the island! Come watch Lake Arlington transition from day to night with a spectacular view of the sunset from a secluded island beach. Then enjoy the amazing beauty of the lake from kayak as darkness descends and the water turns to glass. We will check in at 6:45 launch at 7:15 and paddle across the lake to our favorite beach on the island. There we will take a break and enjoy snacks while we watch the sun set. Then we will turn on our boat lights and paddle around the island to check out the cove, then paddle home in the evening dark.
If you need equipment: $45 per person for boat, vest, lights, and snacks. We have both singles and tandem boats available (and a canoe) (same price per person). No experience necessary. This is a guided trip with an ACA certified Instructor Guide. Wear water-friendly shoes (You WILL get your feet wet) and clothing or swim wear that can get wet. Wear layers as the temps will drop into the 60's after the sun goes down.
If you have your own boat and lights, $10 launch fee (paid to the park) unless you already have a season's pass. If you have a boat, but need to rent lights, they are $5. Snack and water is $5. Of course a tip for the guide is nice.

IMPORTANT: If you need a boat you MUST pre-pay to reserve your spot using the link below. Prepayment or calling us are the only ways to guarantee your rental boat. You MUST leave a contact number if you are renting or if you need lights. Rental customers get priority off the waitlist once the event is full so let us know if you are renting.
Also, if you are running late you must call to let us know.
