POLICIES

Children: We do not have a lifeguard or babysitting service. Your children are not to be left unattended at any swimming area, or on our campgrounds for any reason!
* We do not Float children Age 2 or under.

Departure Day: Please have your campsite packed up and trash picked up by 11:00 A.M. so we can prepare for our next guests. Feel free to use our beach and facilities for the remainder of the day. If you are floating on departure day please pack up your campsite before you leave for your float trip.

Pets: Though all of us at Two Sons love dogs, only the well mannered are allowed on the premises, and all dogs must be kept on leashes! There is plenty of shade and water available to keep them comfortable. Please do not leave pets unattended, and clean up after them. We do not charge for your pet to camp or float, but there is a $5.00 fee for each pet to ride our shuttle bus. No pets in our rafts!

Rain Days: We float rain or shine; as do our competitors (unless extreme weather conditions make floating unsafe for you). If we cannot start your float trip by 2:00 p.m. a rain check for a later date will be issued (based on availability). No rain checks or refunds for camping.

Rental Equipment: We expect normal wear on our canoes, rafts, kayaks, life jackets and paddles. We do not expect or accept damage or loss from mishandling or abuse. If you tear up or abandon our equipment you will be asked to pay for the replacement or retrieval of the equipment.

Reservations: Reservations require a credit or debit card deposit. We will charge your card 50% of equipment or RV site rental. We highly recommend reservations for floating the Elk River on weekends and for large groups during the week. Paid reservations will guarantee your float until 12:00 noon on float date. Please call if you are going to be late.

Rowdy, Trouble People: Do not come to Two Sons. Please save yourself and us the time and trouble of having you evicted from our campground. We want everyone at Two Sons to have a good time and pleasant experience. Respect for others must be observed! If there is a dispute our decision is final.

Safety and Liability: The activities associated with camping, canoeing, and adventuring on the river include some risks. Although we provide much of the equipment, you assume ALL responsibility for personal injury, medical expenses, and property loss or damage. To participate in river activities at Two Sons Floats & Camping we ask that you sign a liability waiver.

Security: We have on site security and owners that are there for your safety and well being. Keep camp policies in mind and our right to remove you from the premises for violations. If there is a dispute our decision is final. Your valuables and personal property are your responsibility.

Shuttles.
We do shuttle private boats, but it is not cheap.  The most difficult part of getting on the water is the shuttling.  That is what everyone is really paying for.

Jello Shots, Glass and Styrofoam Coolers
Missouri law prohibits jello shots, glass of ANY kind, and styrofoam coolers of any kind on or near any water way, including the campground.

Kids.
We do not Float children Age 2 or under. 

The river is busy and can be rated “R” on Friday night and Saturday.  Any other day of the week, the Elk River is great family fun!  We do have a family area.  If you are coming on the weekend with kids, let us know and we will try to get you in the family area.

What you’ll need.
We sell firewood, ice, light snacks, drinks, and souvenirs.  You will need to bring everything else.  Do not transport firewood; it spreads tree diseases.

Reservations.
Reservations are highly recommended for weekends.  You’ll need a debit or credit card.  We will charge your card a week to 10 days before your arrival (holidays are charged earlier) for 50% (100% if only one boat) of your equipment rental.

Campsite reservations and requests.
We custom design the campsites each weekend based on the groups that are going to be here.  You’ll see the orange tape.  We do our best to accommodate your requests for specific areas of the campground. We cannot guarantee you’ll be right next to “that big tree we were by last year”, but we will try.
