Float the River at Tahlequah, Oklahoma

While it may officially be fall, the weather here in Oklahoma doesn’t feel like it yet. That means there’s still time to get in some last second water-based adventures. From swimming holes to leisure days at the lake, Oklahoma has got you covered.

Maybe you’re more into canoeing, kayaking, and rafting? Head over to where the Illinois River passes near Tahlequah for some quality time on the river in your watercraft of choice.

It’s good time on the water for people of all ages and skill levels since the water is so gentle. That means it’s the perfect spot to take the whole family if you’re looking for a quick trip that everyone will enjoy.

The Illinois River in this area represents 60+ miles of scenic waterway as it winds through the Cookson Hills of northeastern Oklahoma. The area specifically around Tahlequah is made for a relaxing float down the river. There’s a high concentration of outfitters in that region along with plenty of extracurricular recreational opportunities, so all you have to do is show up and let the outfitters figure out the rest.

How you see the river is up to you, though canoes, kayaks, and inflatable rafts are the most popular.

Kayaks are a great option if it’s just you and another person since they’re the perfect size for two and are highly maneuverable.

Canoes are good for parties of about three and are also easy to maneuver.

Rafts are the go-to if you’ve got a big party and you’re not worried about getting anything done fast.

In any case, head out there the next time you’ve got some time off. It’s a great weekend or day trip that everyone will love.
