Due to Mammoth Cave National Park closing access to and from the river, Dennison Ferry to Green River Ferry will be closed until next season. For paddle’s sake, we’re offering a 4 mile Johnson Springs to Thelma Stovall Park in Munfordville, 27 miles up Green River. You will now leave your vehicle at Thelma Stovall Park River Road, jump in our van, and be shuttled 10 minutes to Johnson Springs. Beauty at its best, great scenery, and clear spring waters. You will receive a waiver after booking the trip. All participants must sign before arriving. If you have any questions concerning the trip or would like to book an overnight camping excursion, please call for information.

The type of canoeing and the best trip change with the water levels. Since all canoeing rivers are fairly small streams, conditions can change rapidly. Generally speaking, the water tends to be somewhat higher and faster in the spring and early summer or after periods of substantial rainfall.
