The Dallas Downriver Club (DDRC) is a not for profit 501(c) 7 club that has a close knit group of members who like to canoe, kayak and camp along beautiful river banks. Currently we host about 12 to 15 paddling events a year. Each member is responsible for supply their own watercraft and camping gear.
Our trips (events) are for members only except for local "Urban Paddles" and our yearly "Caddoween" event at Caddo Lake. Urban Paddles are usually on Saturday or Sunday mornings at a local river or lake. Urban Paddle events are only 3 or 4 hours long and are a great opportunity to meet and greet current members and new member prospects.
In addition the DDRC also hosts the Trinity River Challenge, a canoe and kayak race on the Trinity River for all skill levels. The race hadbeen on hiatus due to some construction and flooding issues and return this September 17. Registration opens June 1.
The DDRC is also a proud member/sponsor of the Trinity River Coalition , a group working with local governments to improve recreational access to the East,West and Elm forks of the Trinity River in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
