About the Embarras River:
The Embarrass River got its name from Lewis and Clark. They were embarrassed because they crossed it so many times before realizing it was the same curvy river. You can head on down the river on your canoe, stop in, camp, and enjoy some great music and drinks.

            Visit us to have fun with our pig, go camping, and enjoy the countryside.
