Boise River Float Take Out
The end of your river floating trip is at Ann Morrison Park
. Just 6 miles along the lazy river the float takes
about two hours from put in to take out. Once you have
past the islands and see the Old railroad Bridge you know
your time is almost up and should start drifting towards the
left side of the river.
During the busy summer season a lot of floaters are
trying to leave the river at the same time, so there are two
places to leave the water on on the left side of the river.
The first is upriver from the the pedestrian bridge while
the other is just past it.
Do try to aim for the first take out point, and if you
miss it then the second. If you miss the second then
you'll be paddling backwards to try again which may not be
In the Ann Morrison Park right next to the take out
points you'll find facilities including bins for both
recycling and for trash. Do keep our river and our parks
clean! Restrooms are also located in the park.
Remember, no glass containers are allowed on the river
and no alcoholic beverages are permitted either.
If you have rented equipment from Epleys such as rafts
and innertubes don't worry about taking them back to Barber
Park, you can hand them in at Ann Morrison Park, presuming
you don't want to go around again that is!
Consider spending some time in the Ann Morrison Park
itself, did you know it was developed in 1959 by Harry
Morrison of the Morrison-Knudsen Company ? They built the
Hoover Dam and Kennedy Space Center. Harry dedicated this
park to his wife Ann.
Inside the park you'll find plenty of park benches and
picnic tables shaded by the mature trees. There are also
great walking, biking and wildlife trails. Don't miss the
Water Fountain in summer where you can get soaked, if you
managed to stay dry during your float of the river!
