Illinois River information

The three most popular ways to float the river are canoe, kayak or raft.  The river is rated as Class II, and is a gently-flowing waterway with few hazards and a moderately paced current, so it’s accessible to most river-goers.  An outfitter can help you with the equipment you need for a trip down the great Illinois, including life vests.  Outfitters will transport riders to a drop-off point, then the riders will float back to the camp or to a pick-up point at a predetermined distance.
