Anyone floated this on an overnight trip? I did about 10 - 12yrs ago with a large group, but my memory has failed me again as far as put-in / take-out locations, camp site. Also, my wife and I have some canoeing experience, but will be making the float in 10’ rec boats and was wondering if the Cacapon would be too challenging for us…I don’t remember it being too difficult, but again…failing memory. Thanks in advance for any info all:)

an excerpt from the WV canoeing guidebook:
this page has a couple topo maps you can print out:
Cacapon river gauge
according to the book you want 2 or more feet on the Great Cacapon gauge which is at the end of the river, in order to float the 50 or so miles from Capon Bridge/Hwy 50 on down to the Potomac.
it hasn’t been consistently above 2’ since the beginning of June, so this is probably best as a Spring trip ,unless you get lucky with a few days of rain.
