There are no bad campsites on the Smith, but yes, some are better than others. When choosing campsites, the most important factor to consider is how many miles you plan on floating each day.

When The Fun Begins, The Planning Doesn't End

Boats are in the water, the group is eager to push off. Final checklists are complete, and off you go. The one item on the checklist that is often overlooked for each boat is knowledge.

  • Where are we camping?
  • How far do we have to go?
  • What's the name of the campsite?

When every boat is using onWater, the answers are in everyone's hands.
