Consider investing in a water-tight dry bag, or just use Ziploc bags or Tupperware. Loading up with extra stuff only means more that can go rushing down the river if your canoe tips.
**Note: Do not take anything on river that you mind losing or take the chance of getting wet
*Note:NO FLIP FLOPS AND NO STYROFOAM COOLERS ALLOWED ON THE RIVER! (Flip flops get stuck in mud and get lost easily. Coolers breakup and do not breakdown in our environment and are left along the banks of our rivers)

What is the Auglaize & Blanchard River like (fast/slow) ?
Answer : The Auglaize River is a very gentle, meandering river. It is ideal for beginners or older couples that want a relaxing ride without having a lot of prior canoe/kayak knowledge or skill. The river is usually about 2-3' deep on average, although there are spots that are deeper and also some spots that are more shallow. Water level is always in direct relation to the amount of precipitation we have had in the area.
