To ensure customer satisfaction, reservations are a MUST. Reservations are made by calling us at 334-514-0279. Call volumes are extremely high from Mid May to Mid August especially when the weather guesser gives a great forecast. Call early and please be patient if put on hold. Hanging up the phone and calling back only increases call volumes. Veterans know to call early in the week and have learned to ignore the weather forecasts.
Be sure to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled trip time to check in, get outfitted with your PFD and pay for your trip. To save time and reduce 'covid contact' print and fill out the liability form in advance. All paddlers using CRA provided PFD's must come to the office for sizing. Our mandatory safety brief (we make it fun and audience participation is required) will begin promptly at your scheduled time. Don't be late. Basically be ready to depart once the safety brief bell is rung.

Tallapoosa River Trips:
We offer extended 3 or 4 day/2 or 3 night trips on our sister river, the Tallapoosa. This 51 mile trip consists of variable moving flat water via releases from Thurlow Dam in Tallassee Alabama. Your trip begins here at Coosa River Adventures where we provide you with maps and detailed information. Then we shuttle you and your gear to the last fall line on the Tallapoosa River for you to navigate from the rocky Appalachian formation to the sandy Coastal Plain. Historic Fort Toulouse, just before the confluence of the Tallapoosa and Coosa Rivers (which form the Alabama River), is where we pick up you and your gear. We provide the boat, paddles, backrests, lifejackets and the transportation to the put in and from the take out. You bring your own supplies (food, drinks, and camping gear). The numerous sand bars are great for camping. Bring your binoculars for birding and wildlife viewing or your poles for fishing. Click Here To Download/Open Tallapoosa River Tips
