We floated 18 miles by about 7pm, with a few breaks in between, which put us between the Hwy 6 and I-80 bridges. We found a sand bar and set camp. There was enough dry river wood around for a good fire for a warm supper. We constructed our shelter with our tarp, rope, and a large tree limb spread across our kayaks.
At 1am the stars were out and by 3am we were in the middle of a huge storm. I suggest to always make a shelter. A warm breakfast in the morning and we were off at about 8am. 8 miles later we finished at 12pm at Louisville State Park
We floated a total of 26 miles. Which was a total of about 10 hours of actual float time.
Louisville is a State Park so there are plenty of tent and camper sites available. They have a river access point along the tent camping area with a parking lot. This is where I had left my truck overnight for us.
Louisville State Park--Hwy 50 south out of Omaha, you will pass over the river and once you go through Louisville you will take a right into Louisville State Park. There is a sign.
