This is a fun paddle, with the caveats given in previous reviews. It's beautiful and mild and scenic, but it is also popular and there was definitely a party crowd present so if you wanted a quiet, smoke and booze-free float you were out of luck at points. We didn't mind the basic facilities, but we found the service and... More

My daughter and I just returned from doing the 10 mile float in a kayak with Flatwoods Canoe Base and had a beautiful, relaxing trip down the Buffalo River. We first stopped at another rental called Buffalo River Resort which was closer to our home but they were unfriendly and disorganized so we went further down the road. We are... More

Our family of five just returned home from the 10 mile float and we were planning our return trip before we left their parking lot. The gentleman who shuttled us to and from the river was friendly and gave us "newbies" some pointers. The office staff was friendly. The price for the canoe and kayak rental was better than most...

Flatwoods Canoe Base is great. Always dependable, always answer their phone, good prices and nice folks to boot. We never worry about our vehicle(s) or other valuables we leave with them and they are always exactly where they say they'll be when they say they'll be there.

Four of us rented tubes to float down the river and had a blast! I called ahead of time and spoke to Tucker who was very help and very friendly. The trip to the river in the van was short, so we did not have to wait long to get floating. When our trip was over, the van was there... More
