Potomac River Camping Trip

September 29 @ 5:00 am - October 1 @ 5:00 pm UTC-5

Paddle and camping trip on the upper potomac river (Deposit is required to reserve your spot)

Last year, the weather stopped us from heading out to enjoy this great weekend, however, I am not one to give up so easily.

**This trip requires a deposit to reserve your spot**

This new trip is sure to be a great one. We will spend three days and two nights kayaking the Potomac river water trail as it flows through the beautiful wilderness of west virginia and maryland.
Day one will start early when we meet at tioa headquarters load gear and boats and head to our start point near PawPaw, West Virginia. We will paddle 10 miles to our first campsite near (ironically) old lock 60.
Day two we will paddle 19 miles stopping for lunch near the fifteen mile creek aquaduct. we camp near great Cacapon, WV.
Day three will have us paddling 12 miles to our end point. Passing by Devils Eyebrow anticline, an amazing geological feature located on the Maryland side of the river.

Trip cost includes, guide with river certification, first aid and cpr, meals on water, and shuttle driver.

Please Note – deposit is required to reserve your spot

“From its source at Fairfax Stone, high in the Appalachian Mountains, to Point Lookout on the ChesapeakeBay, the mighty Potomac River winds its way through 386 miles of Americana……..Native Americans knew it as the Patawomeke, and in 1608 Captain John Smith plotted its path for European settlers. George Washington was born, lived, and died along its banks.”
We will see only a small piece of this treasure filled with historical landmarks and natural beauties, but every mile of our 40 plus mile paddle is sure to be memorable.
