Trapper John's is busy during the summer months so I would recommend going before noon. Our family went on the 4 mile/2 hour trip. It goes really fast. We liked it better than... read more

Overall a very nice place with great services! After checking in, a bus took us up the river where we carried the kayaks into the river. The best part is that they leave you without a guide or any supervision and let you enjoy the time in the wilderness alone! There is no rush and no expected time of arrival.... More

My wife and I took a great September kayak trip on Darby creek at Trapper Johns canoe livery. We will do it again. We saw a lot of wildlife, turtles, fish, and birds! The small rapids were also great fun!

Every summer I take my kids on the Darby Creek. We started out with canoes because they were too young to kayak. Two kids can kayak and complete the Sampler Tour now (ages 10 and 12). The youngest (6) still stays in a canoe. She actively paddles and helps to steer. The staff at Trapper John's have always been super... More

We've come before with our own kayaks and paid to get a shuttle back to Trapper John's from the Lower Darby. Today they told us that we needed to first drive our truck down to the take out site and shuttle back to the livery. When my husband politely talked to the owner, he told them that it is to... More

We rented 4 kayaks and chose the 1-2 hour trip. It was amazing. All downstream w pick up at the end. A few small waterfalls added just enough excitement. A perfect day! Thanks to great staff at checkout, the store, and pick up crew.

The water seemed to be at a good level at the beginning but there were two spots we had tog et out and carry our kayaks. We saw sun bathing turtles laying on partially submerged trees. Just make sure you... More

Its a great trip for those that just want to be on the water for a few hours. Trip is not real long and would be great for beginners.

Trapper John's Canoe Livery is an awesome place to float. Staff is very friendly. We took a friend out for the first time yesterday, she loved it and will be back.
