Staunton River By Canoe

Friday, August 02, 2013


STAUNTON RIVER BY CANOE: The Staunton River Battlefield State Park offers public and private guided river trips. The eight-mile trip takes about four hours with several stops along the way to swim, explore and learn about history of the river and maybe get a glimpse of turtles, a heron or even a bald eagle. The cost is only $5 per person. The park provides the canoe, paddles, a PFD and the shuttle ride. The park is limited to the first 14 to register. Call 434-454-4312 to secure seats. The trip leaves the Clover Visitors Center at 9 a.m. Public dates in August include Saturday, Aug. 3, (youth and scout group day) and Saturday, Aug. 17. Private trips are offered during weekdays for groups of eight to 14 people when staffing allows. Cost is $5 per person. Call the park for dates and details.
