Can't beat canoeing with the family on a lovely Saturday in August! Helpful employees aide you in gearing up and heading out! Then blissful, serene, calm waters await you. Simple, sweet, nature at its best.

Thank you Debby! We are glad you enjoyed yourself. I would note that you do not need to register to rent a canoe. We typically have plenty of kayaks, SUPs and more than enough canoes. (You may want to call ahead on a hot, sunny...More
