The Fort Smith Paddling Club

 

The Fort Smith Paddling Club wins by geography!  We are located on the shores of the Slave River, along a historic portage route which led fur traders around the rapids that we now love to play in.  

The Slave River Rapids are a dream for big whitewater paddlers!  This is a drop pool river - in between the four main ledges, there are sections of flatwater.  This means that our river has paddling opportunities for everyone, from beginner routes on flatwater to extreme grade V and VI routes.
