Creek Freak
The Creek Freaks Paddlers, a paddling club co-sponsored by the Franklin County Parks & Recreation Department, is a family oriented club that exposes people to local rivers. From arranging trips and gear swaps to expanding the availability of river/lake access facilities, the Creek Freaks are all about water. Continued growth of the blueway network and paddling sports activities will depend on volunteers and partners who will provide critical support to work on particular projects or events. The Creek Freaks are just a group of paddlers trying to float the rivers. Creek Freaks Facebook

Float Fishermen of VA
Float Fishermen of VirginiaThe Roanoke Valley Chapter of the Float Fishermen of Virginia (FFV) is a varied group of boaters that includes rafters, kayakers & canoeists. We do whitewater paddling, flat water fishing, and everything in between. Most importantly, we all pull together when it comes to protecting our waterways. When not on the water, we gather on the last Wednesday of each month (except August & December) at the Roanoker Restaurant. Starting at 7:30 p.m. meetings are likely to include stories of past trips, planning for future ones, reports on projects, updates on access and conservation issues, safety issues, and more. Many folks come early for dinner and networking with other boaters. Come and join us, shake a hand or two, meet someone with the same boating interests, and just have some fun for a change!
