Des Moines River Water Trail
The Boone County portion of the Des Moines River was designated as a state watertrail in the fall of 2009. Being a state watertrail, there are signs pointing you to the launch sites, informational kiosks, and signs along the bridges. There are approximately 38 river miles with 8 boat ramps making the Des Moines River a perfect place to canoe, kayak, boat, or float down. It’s a great place to fish, view wildlife, and relax. RIVER USERS BEWARE OF THE DAMS NEAR FRASIER AND BOONE WATERWORKS!!!
