Grand River 2-Day Canoe and Camping Trip

Two Day Grand River route on the middle lower Grand. Exceptional Waters stretch of the Canadian Heritage River running from Paris thru Brant’s Crossing to the Oxbow, camping overnight at Brant Park.

Designated for its outstanding quality providing outdoor experiences & its significance in Canadian history. It’s ancestral home to First Nations Iroquois & a cultural mosaic of settlers from English & Scots, to German & Mennonites. And it’s home to an abundance of nature as South Ont.’s largest river with rare Carolinian forest, 85 species of fish, Blue Heron, Osprey & Bald Eagles.

Launching from our 140 year old Outfitters Shop in Paris, paddle by the town’s 1800’s riverside architecture & into the Carolinian Forest valley. We equip you with a map plus directions from our experienced guide staff so you can find fresh water springs flowing in from Mile Hill, a Blue Heron Rookery, Whiteman’s Creek & Sarah’s Island mixed in with miles of scenery & great paddling. And that’s just your first day.

Land at Camp GECKO in Brant Conservation Area to camp for the night in 1 of South Ontario’s largest nature parks with 3 kilometres of riverfront. Launch from your campsite for day 2’s journey on our Mohawk run. Paddle past historic D’aubigny Creek & the Mohawk Chapel, through Brant’s Crossing & on to the Oxbow. A section of river full of history, it’s home to Chief Joseph Brant, Alexander Graham Bell & Sir George Brown, a Father of Canadian Confederation.

The whole route covers relaxing River sections, a small lake at Brant plus dashes of small swifts along the way to keep your interest & test your skills.

We keep your adventure stress-free handling all your logistics. Begin day 1 parking at your Brant Park campsite & catching our shuttle upstream to Paris. End of day two, we meet you at the Oxbow landing & shuttle you back to your vehicle at Brant Park.
