  • Albion River

Canoe or Kayak the Albion River

This is an easy paddling experience but it’s somewhat tidal dependent, particularly if the wind is working against you. But if you catch the tides just right, paddling is even easier. Your trip will be approximately five miles. Shortly after you leave the campground, you’ll come across a few homes floating in the water. Please may heed to the “No Trespassing” signs and respect their occupants’ privacy. Shortly thereafter, you’ll feel as if you’ve totally escaped civilization. Don’t be surprised to sea otters as you travel further up river amongst the redwoods until the river narrows so much that it’s no longer navigable. Then it’s time to turn back, and with any luck the tide will now be heading out, making your return seem almost too quick.
