Event Calendar

Open Shuttles are adventures that anyone can join. Bent River Outfitter will load up your gear onto our trailer and lead you out to the Fort LeHillier landing on County Road 90. There you can drop your vehicle and join us in our van. From there we will drive to the Rapidan Dam and help everyone get in the Blue Earth River, which you can float for about 4 hours, eventually finishing at the Fort LeHillier landing where your vehicle will be waiting for you.
