I've canoed here many times summer months are crowded. Winter is a great time to float this river.

The Current River is my favorite camping location. We usually find a place near the banks, and avoid the public camping grounds.
It's so relaxing to swim or to walk up and down the river for a little adventure. Don't forget to say hi to all the canoes headed downstream! There's all kinds of unmarked trails snaking around, too.
The River is an awesome place to spend an outdoor weekend!

Canoed from Baptist landing (first landing south of Montauk state park) and canoed to Twin rivers landing, about 32 miles. The is a wild river owned by the park dept. This allows you to camp anywhere along the river. The river is spring fed making it floatable all year long. Very scenic. Excellent fishing, including trout. Highly recommended. The whole area has huge number of hikes and scenic areas. A week in the area doesn't touch your opportunities.
