When is the best time to inflatable kayak the Arkansas River?
The Milk Run offers the best inflatable kayak experience during summer and fall. In high water years, this section is more than just a float trip during peak runoff which may not be appropriate for beginner kayakers.

PFDs, helmets, paddles, splash gear, first aid, and all other safety equipment are included with the price of your inflatable kayak tour.
