Friends of the Kaw has long worked to promote compatible public recreational use of the river, and has encouraged the development of adequate public access throughout the Kansas River. This website provides detailed information about Kansas River access, general float information, safety, and fishing. Friends of the Kaw estimates it takes about 1 hour to paddle 3 miles. Novice paddlers should not attempt to paddle more that 10 miles in one day.
