Get Wet at Fort Niangua River Resort

Float trips are a fun way to spend the day out on the Niangua River. At Fort Niangua River Resort, we offer the widest variety of rafts, canoes, kayak rentals, and tubes in Lebanon, MO. Once you are in your water vessel of choice, let the river take you downstream. You can enjoy the sites and sounds of the forest around you. Float trips last between 3 to 8 hours depending on the trip you pick. No matter what trip you decide to take, please remember to wear plenty of sunscreen!

If it is raining the morning of your scheduled float or kayak rental, you will be issued a rain check based on availability. If it is still raining after 12:00pm and the river is NOT FLOATABLE, you will also be issued a rain check based on availability. The rain check will be good for one year from the date issued towards a vessel rental (no cash value). If the rain stops before 12:00pm no rain checks will be issued.

Half of each vessel reserved deposit is due at time of booking.

You must inform Fort Niangua by 10:00 am 15 days in advance of any changes or cancellations less a 25% service charge. If the cancellation is less than 15 days prior to your arrival date your deposit will be forfeited. Prices are subject to change without notice.

For your safety, the Niangua River is patrolled by the Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Missouri Conservation Department.
