We have visited Current River the past two 4th of July's. Both times, we canoed from Baptist Camp to Akers Ferry day one, then Akers to Round Spring day 2. It's a total of 36 miles. The river is absolutely beautiful and serene. This canoe trip is fine for a novice but it would be helpful to be with an experienced person because some places do get dicey. There are usually a lot of friendly people relaxing on the river in kayaks, tubes, floats and canoes. There are plenty of spots to pull off, too. I would shorten day 2 though, only because it is a bit exhausting.
As for rentals, do not use Akers Ferry. The first year, we had a leaky metal canoe. The second year was fine except we rented a cabin from them. It was the most disgusting place I have every stayed. There was blood on the pillowcase, mold in the shower, the hot water heater broke and it was infested with flies. When I complained, I was treated like garbage. I complained again, to someone else, and checked out early. We were able to get one evening refunded. When we checked in at a hotel, they guessed we had stayed at Akers and said "we hear this all of the time."
