B.Y.O.B. (Boat that is)


If you’re still intent on floating the Boise River, you may find yourself dragging bottom.

As irrigation canals throughout the valley are being shut down early due to the ongoing drought, the river is running low, prompting the closure of Barber Park raft and tube rentals.

The rental office was able to stay open through the holiday weekend, but as of Tuesday, the only way to float the river is if you bring your own boat. Be prepared for the occasional portage.
