IF YOU ARE RAFTING OR BOATING ON RIVERS OR STREAMS...ALWAYS WEAR
LIFE JACKETS OR VESTS...AND KEEP OTHER FLOTATION GEAR HANDY. BE

THE WATER...GET TO SAFETY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

HIGHEST WATER LEVELS OCCUR AT NIGHT...USUALLY WITHIN AN HOUR OR
TWO ON EITHER SIDE OF MIDNIGHT. A CAMPGROUND MAY LOOK DRY AND SAFE
IN THE LATE AFTERNOON...BUT CAN TAKE ON WATER AT NIGHT.
