Trail Maps for the Wading and Oswego Rivers

The Oswego River is considered one of the most beautiful in the country, though we like the Wading River just as much.  Travel times, distances and maps for each trail are listed below.

  • All time are approximate depending on individual ability.
  • Trip times will vary depending on water levels.
  • All trails using Bodine Field require a camping permit.
  • The Oswego River trail will involve portage.

Trip Information

We encourage our canoers and kayakers to relax and enjoy the gentle rivers and beauty of the forest. You can add extra time for swimming and picnicking to any trip. However, all boats must be on the beach by 4:00 p.m. Plan accordingly to make the most of your day. Please schedule yourself enough time. Your choice of trail is determined by how early you check-in at the store.

  • 5 hour trips can arrive between store opening and no later than 10:30 a.m.
  • 4 hour trips can arrive between store opening and no later than 11:30 a.m.
  • 3 hour trips can arrive between store opening and no later than 12:30 p.m.
