Thaxtonís will shuttle you to your starting point and you will paddle down to your vehicle. Private boaters welcome. Shuttle fees vary on distance driven and run from $18 - $40 a boat for 1 to 2 day trips. Those setting up their own shuttle and using our access sites must sign a release form and pay the insurance assessment of $7.50/person.
