We take the family only once a year because it is very expensive. We only go on weekdays because it is not nearly as crowded as the weekends. This past summer we had four adults and two eight year olds. We got one canoe and two kayaks. The kids are free in the canoe. We rotate because we all prefer... More

We usually visit Green Acres about 3 times a summer. Over the past couple of years the trips have gotten less and less enjoyable. Now with the overwhelming number of canoes and kayaks that are launched it's like I-75 on Friday afternoon. Wildlife spotting is a waste of time. The amount of drinking, drunkenness and profanity makes it impossible to... More

This is a great stretch of river to paddle. There are several bald eagles to see along the trip, along with other beautiful scenery along the way. The Green Acres Staff is very friendly and helpful. They seem to really care about their customers.

I have a love/hate relationship with Green Acres. My husband and I have been canoeing/kayaking here for several years. The family (I know of the husband, wife, and son) that own the place are awesome -genuinely friendly and attentive. The place was recently renovated and it looks great. You can tell the crowds are increasing from last year which takes... More

Now that our children are older it can be hard to find something to do that everyone enjoys. Our kids are 32-16 years of age. We tried this for my 31 years old twins' birthday. My husband and I got a canoe along with one son and a friend. Three of the kids with friends' and spouse got double kayaks.... More

Traveling in the area and went to the river. You park on a farm and a bus takes you to the location. The price is the same for all boats chosen. You pick from 3 miles or 8 miles. 8 miles took us 3 hours in a canoe and we didn't make any stops like many do on the banks.... More

I felt I needed to respond to Rhonda’s post. I know exactly the day she is talking about, Sunday July 21, 2013. My family was also at Green Acres on this day. We kayak/canoe regularly and can guarantee that this particular day was NOT normal! We were surprised at the amount of cars in the lot as soon as we... More
