Where can I put in my canoe on the river?

Although the Authority does not own or maintain canoe/kayak launch points on the Brazos, there are many put-in and take-out locations available along the Brazos River.

The most popular paddling locations are the stretches of river below Possum Kingdom Lake and Lake Granbury. You can find points below the dam at Possum Kingdom Lake by clicking here. For the area below Lake Granbury you can find a map of distances and access points here.

Information including access points and hazards along sections throughout the basin can be found through the helpful resource of Southwest Paddler by clicking here.
