Overnight Grand River Canoe Camping Trip

4-Hour Self-Guided Trip

1 day/ 1 night trip along the Grand River. Drop you gear & park your vehicle at our Brant Park / Grand River Conservation Area campsites & ride our shuttle upriver to begin your trip in historic Paris, Ontario.
Your adventure launches from the docks at our historic 145 year old Outfitters Post in Paris on the Grand River. Paddling past the town’s historic riverside architecture, you leave civilization behind as nature offers plenty to see & do. This run is a relaxing section of the Grand River, with dashes of small swifts for a little excitement. You can view Great Blue Herons, Ospreys, Mallard ducks, turtles & perhaps white-tailed deer along the riverbank with an occasional Bald Eagle. Stop & explore rare Carolinian forest lining the banks of the Grand. Experience the Grand as First Nations people saw it hundreds of years ago & as the first European settlers viewed it when they came here 250 years ago.

In this section of the river you can take time to experience the cold springs feeding into the river or might spot a beaver as you float past Whitemans Creek. The trip ends in Brant Conservation Area by Brantford. As you reach the Conservation Area the river forms a 3 km long lake. A great thing about our Cayuga Run is you can land soon as you reach our Camp GECKO Landing at Brant Park, or you stretch out your trip in Brant’s Lake, paddling past our landing to explore the Park’s shoreline & the lake’s several islands. With little current in ‘the lake’ you can easily paddle back up to our landing after some extra exploring.

Your riverside campsite is easily accessible from our Camp GECKO Landing at Brant Conservation Area. One of south Ontario’s largest natural areas, the campgrounds covers hundreds of hectares and over 3 kilometres of riverfront.
