We put in on private property, and took out on private property. I have a friend that shuttled us and let us park our trucks at his place on the river. I think the Red River is over looked and undervalued for its paddling potential. Quite a few people paddle the section just above and below Texoma, but very few paddle the section from Lamar County east. We were paddling a section in Red River County, North of Clarksville. There are places to put in, on Hwy. 271, 37, and 259. You can go all the way to Louisiana. Most of the trips between highway bridges are 20-30 miles, which would require an overnight trip, but except during high flow periods (which are rare) there are lots of big sandbars to camp on. There is not much shade, so the cooler months are much more comfortable, but with a little planning, you can paddle the river year round, and can go for as many days as you want to. I don't know why people are so scared of the Red, with a little common sense it is no more dangerous than any other river, as a mater of fact with its gentle flow, I think it is very tame. Not the best river for swimming, but great for paddling, camping, and great fishing river.
