Our group of 14 got the family fun package on a Thursday morning. Not crowded at the canoe livery, and we all enjoyed the kayaking. We took the shorter 5 mile trip and it did take just over an hour. Beautiful, peaceful river. Water was low in spots but no problems. Great time!
Rain rolled in later that afternoon, so we didn't make it to the Fun Center until the next day. If you're like us and have terrible phone reception, be sure to jot down the address from the website when you're connected. My entire group has Verizon, and no service in that area. We first tried Google Maps ( I had it offline), but it took us to a wrong location. When we drove further past the livery, we finally picked up some bars, could access the site, and once we had the address, saw it was 10 minutes away from our wrong location. (I would have stopped into the livery for help, but it was PACKED! on the weekend. Pretty far to park and with a caravan of cars that we had for our group, we just kept going.) Unfortunately, Google still messed up- told us to turn onto something like road '796' or something like that- but the road sign was marked '10' as the road name. It's a 70 MPH road, so not easy to break in time and figure out on the spot that yes, this is correct despite the name being wrong. So no fault of the Fun Center at all, just issues because of no service and Google being incorrect.

Anyway, go karts were a lot of fun- I do recommend this, and the package deal was worth the money. We skipped putt putt, and the splash pad was broken that day- which, the canoe sales person should have told us at the time we bought the package, as some were interested in that as an activity. It was nice, too, that you didn't have to do it all at once, and could do the Fun Center another time or even another day.

Beautiful trip ! We had brand new kayaks. The river was nice and clean. The river had areas to stop for lunch. We really enjoyed it. Thanks

Did the Rock bridge trip and had a great time. The man who dropped us off at the launch point was very friendly, knowledgeable about the area, and helpful. If you go on any trip that passes by the Rock Bridge, I would definitely recommend stopping and do the short hike to check it out. The water level seemed a little low and we got stuck once, but I would attribute that to the fact neither of us were extremely experienced at canoeing. All in all, it was a nice, relaxing trip and I would recommend it.

Two of us had reserved a riverside campground a few weeks ago. One week prior to our trip Logan (and most of Ohio) received a large amount of rain. However the water levels had gone down significantly when it was time for our trip. We started out with kayaking- which was great. We were a little late past the last transfer time, but the staff there was kind enough to drop us off. We were really happy with our experience at the Livery. We went to check in at our campsite- and the staff informed us that their river side campground was completely trashed because of the recent flooding. Now- I made this reservation weeks ago as mentioned above, but we didn't receive a phone call or anything explaining the situation prior to arrival. I understand that things happen and the campground was flooded, but I reserved the riverside campground for a reason and would have appreciated a heads up. I expressed my frustration, but the staff at the campground didn't apologize for the inconvenience or act like they cared. We were given the option of staying at their other site or at the Livery. We ended up staying at the Livery which was okay, but we were both very disappointed in the lack of professionalism of the staff at the campground. The only thing that was positive with that staff was that they gave us free firewood.

The restrooms are clean, shelter was great, We even enjoyed mini golf and raced the go-carts! The staff were very helpful and pleasant, We camp/kayak monthly trips and everyone said: this is our new favorite campground!
