It’s been awhile since I’ve posted here, but I’ll be posting regularly now.

One of the latest explorations has led me to the Red Neck Yacht Club in Watts, Oklahoma.

The beautiful Oklahoma territory, bordering the natural state is much the same in geology. Large rock walls bordered one side of the Illinois River, while large deposits of river rock, sycamore, elm, wild grape, berries and honeysuckle spotted the landscape.

For those interested in visiting the area for a day of rafting, canoing or kayaking, the cost is $20 per adult with children under 12 at half price.

Camping for an entire week: $30. for an individual/$50. for a couple.

For day use and a picnic and swimming, the cost is $5.00 per car/van load.

We enjoyed several hours floating around the river, but if you have small children, the place is not child friendly without constant supervision.

  Though the current is slow, it’s quite strong. Take life jackets or floaties for children.

Watch out for: snapping turtles, snakes.

Check out the Club’s website for updated information on events.
