Bayou Dorcheat Open Paddle

October 2, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 12:30 pm

Its time to kick off the fall season the best way we know how; with a paddle down the bayou of course!
Bring your kayak, canoe, or pirogue for an adventure down Bayou Dorcheat. On this 6 mile paddle between Dixie Inn and Sibley, you’ll discover beautiful cypress trees, a retired train trestle and sand banks to stop for selfies and resting. Whether you’re a frequent paddler or just getting into the sport, we’d love to invite you to relax, explore and make new friends!
Check in begins at 8:00 AM, safety instructions at 8:30 AM and we launch at 9:00 AM. A shuttle will be provided to assist paddlers getting to and from their vehicles.
**Please arrive by 8:00 AM if you would like to use the shuttle to drop off your vehicle at the end of the route.
Stick around after the paddle for food and refreshments!
Special thanks to the Bayou Chapter of the Ozark Society for their partnership for this event!
*This could be your next day trip or staycation! We are located just 28 miles east of Shreveport and 72 miles west of Monroe.
