Guide to Missouri rivers, streams updated

The Missouri Department of Conservation has revised the “Paddler’s Guide to Missouri.”

The booklet features 58 Missouri rivers and streams to canoe and kayak.

The guide was first published in 1965 and has been Missouri’s go-to paddling resource. The booklet includes updated maps and details of Missouri’s more popular Ozark streams but also lesser-known streams and tributaries throughout the state.

Detailed sections include northern streams, the Missouri River and more floats from all corners of the state. Each waterway includes easy-to-read maps, descriptions of access points, camping, state parks and conservation areas along the way.

The guide is available at MDC offices, nature centers and online at

The guide is $8 and there is a 20 percent discount if purchased during July and August.
