Grimes Canoeing Packing List

Paddling down the Buffalo River

General Notes

Prefer soft bags instead of backpacks (their rigid frames are harder to fit into canoes).
All your gear can get wet, so pack items in zip lock bags or dry bags. Trash bags will not work well.
Donʼt over pack, but be prepared for possible changing weather conditions.
No electronics are allowed on this trip.
