Floating

At Boiling Spring Campground (BSC Outdoors) we offer float trips on the Big Piney and Gasconade Rivers.

We rent canoes, rafts, kayaks, tubes, and Jon boats. For our regularly scheduled 3, 5, and 8 mile one day float trips we shuttle you up river to the put-in location where you float back to the campground.
