Welcome to the Dallas Downriver Club

If you'd like to make new friends who share your love of paddling, or want to learn a new river sport, then join us. Beginner or expert, single or family, young or just young at heart, if you're looking for wild whitewater exhilaration or quiet flat water floats, we look forward to paddling with you!  Dallas, Texas is certainly no Mecca of river sports, but some folks who insist on living here do manage to find time and places to paddle anyway. If not the nearby flat water streams of East and North Texas, then a 3-5 hour drive to Arkansas, Oklahoma or the Hill Country will usually do the trick. There's Saturday morning "Urban Paddles", weekend or multi - day base camping and river camping trips, fishing expeditions, summertime Moonlight Floats, the Trinity River Challenge, Caddoween and much more. There are occasionally even expedition trips to  The Boundary Waters, Big Bend, New Mexico, Colorado...all over the country.  

Upcoming Trips & Events

Trinity River Challenge for 2015 has been CANCELLED

 Due to the heavy spring rains and the high levels of Grapevine, Ray Roberts and Lewisville Lakes, the Trinity River in Carrollton will be running at very high levels for the next 60 to 90 days according the the Corps of Engineers. The River is not expected to be low enough to safely run the TRC until some time in October at the earliest. The tight schedule of races around the state does not allow us to select another date without overlapping other scheduled races or scheduled DDRC trips and events. Since we want the 20th running of the TRC to be a special event featuring as many past winners and Under 2 and 3 Hour Club members, we have decided to cancel the 2015 event and plan for 2016.
