The Devil's River is a gorgeous stretch of water, almost 100% surrounded by private land. Access is limited and by permit only, and once you get on the river you can not get out again for 15 miles without being a trespasser. There has been a long adversarial relationship between paddlers and land owners.
TPWD is setting up two paddle up only locations where canoer/kayaker's can stop, legally, and rest. Even camp. This will make the trip immensely more pleasant, and more do-able for those who paddle but aren't up to making a 15 mile trip in one day.
A big Hooray! for TPWD who have once again hit it out of the park for Texans!
