My wife and I did the entire Powell Forest Canoe Route in five days and four nights. This was the first time we have ever been on a canoe trip. It was a great adventure, and we truly enjoyed it. The portages are quite long, but the lakes are worth it. Mitchell was very helpful and flexible, and her canoe... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip along the Powell River Canoe Route using Mitchell's Rental. Christie was incredibly helpful and prompt answering all my questions leading up to our trip, and she went above and beyond to make things work for us: She gave us a lighter canoe than we had paid for because she knew we had a long uphill...

Thanks to Christie at Mitchell's, our trip was a huge success and something our family won't soon forget. She allowed us to reschedule our vacation (at short notice) when the weather didn't cooperate, gave us the inside scoop on the best campsites, and shuttled us to where we needed to go. The ultralight canoe and tent rentals were also exceptional.... More

Christie makes the kayak rental process quick and easy. She is responsive to emails and any inquiries we had. She helped us load everything up on the vehicle and made it seem so simple. I really enjoyed two days of kayaking and seeing the shoreline and wildlife. I Felt like I got my moneys worth on the first outing, but... More

Christie provides the whole package !!! Prompt reply to inquiries by phone or email, great advice on the Powell Lake Canoe circuit, great rental equipment, especially the ultra-light canoe, and a personal touch with pick-up and drop-off. Many thanks from Keith and Penny...we had a wonderful adventure while canoeing the circuit.
