On the Kansas River kayaks and canoes often float in solitude as they pass towering cottonwoods, nesting bald eagles, kingfishers, otters and more.
Floats can range from a few minutes to the entire 178-mile river, spending nights on sand bars and cooking fresh catfish on driftwood fires.
One of the more than a dozen access points along the Kansas River, Topeka’s Kaw River State park gives easy access. The Kansas River has been named a National Water Trail, a title reserved for America’s finest floats.
