Pridefloat FAQ's
Questions commonly asked

  • How can I get power at Pridefloat?​​

Generators below 85 decibels or inverts (no limits) are allowed on site.​

  • Can I come without Pre-Registering?

We strongly recommend pre-registering.  See the "Policies" page regarding walk-ins.​

  • Is there a limit on how many people can attend?

Not since 2013​

  • Why did Pridefloat change its dates?

This was due to the heat, the water levels in the river, lower generator noise (for A.C.s), and no longer limiting our event to 450 people. There were more reasons - but these are the big ones.​

  • Why is the deadline for registering cut off 3 weeks in advance?

This is due to production and shipping times for the T-shirts.​

  • Why can't I call the campground and make reservations with them directly?

You can, however you will not be allowed to camp with us as part of the Pridefloat function nor will you be allowed at the Beer Bust or in our reserved area to party with us. Pridefloat operates on a very slim budget and part of your entry fee is for your free T-shirt, gratuities for our providers, cash prizes for contest winners, paying for gate security on Friday and Saturday nights, paying the DJ,  website server hosting fees, annual website updates, wristbands, stamps, paperwork, and paying $20/hour for data entry and envelope stuffing at mailing time when setting up this event. This event does not happen for free and if you want to party with us, you are expected to support the event.​

  • Should I send my entry form individually or with the rest of the group I am camping with?

It's much easier if your entire group will send ALL their entries together in the same envelope and make ONE payment for the entire group. PLEASE do not staple - use paper clips.​

  • Where do I send my completed entry form?

The Pridefloat PO box​

  • How do I communicate with Pridefloat to ask questions and to verify registration?

With our email listed below, we do NOT use any social media for communication (i.e. Facebook or Twitter.)​

  • Why don't we re-locate to a campground with electrical hook-ups?

This is due to the friendly, secure, supportive, centrally located, liberal, dependable, and affordable campground we use currently. They completely support us and our business, so we support them in this business.

  • Why do we go to the same location year after year? ​

Because we cannot find another outfitter on any other river that is able to accommodate a group as large as ours (or would be willing to) in addition to not being able to find campgrounds to go with the outfitter. We have been going there since 1993.​

  • What is the ratio of men to women at Pridefloat?

Roughly 80% men/20% women. Of course, that changes every year.​

  • Are Pets welcome?

All pets must be kept on a leash and/or always secured. Owners are expected to pick up the poop left behind. Obnoxious barking dogs should NOT be brought to Pridefloat.​

  • Are children allowed?

YOU MUST BE 21 YEARS OF AGE TO ATTEND PRIDEFLOAT. No children will be allowed. This is an adult party.​

  • Why doesn't Pridefloat adopt an on-line payment process?

Because we would need a Gateway Vendor like Pay-Pal or Cyber source for which there are annual fees, and a secure site which requires an SSL certificate for $100 a year. Master Card/Visa charge between 2-3% on each transaction, and there would be fees for building and maintaining the on-line database. We are a once-a-year event, not​ a 24/7/365 business. We would rather spend ALL the money we get for prize money and for the contests and buying you guys your free beer and free souvenirs!

  • How early can I arrive?

You can arrive as early as Monday after 1:00 pm  But you will have to pay additional camping fees. Your registration fee of $65 covers your camping costs from Thursday evening to Noon on Monday ONLY and your canoe/raft rental.​

  • How long can I stay?

All Pridfloaters are expected to be off the premises no later than noon on Monday. You may stay additional time if you pay for additional nights camping costs.​

  • Is Pridefloat connected to any PRIDE events in Kansas City or St. Louis or any other city?

Nope. Just a bunch of folks who like to party and see other people having a good time as well.​

  • Is the Pridfloat Logo a legally registered Trademark?

Absolutely! Our logo is registered personal property of one of our Camp Daddies. Any unauthorized use of our logo is prohibited!
