The Front Royal Canoe Company provides you with everything you need to enjoy the time of your life. You can canoe, kayak, raft, tube, swim, picnic, float, and the river is clean and spectacular. I have been coming here for over 30 years and I get my batteries recharged!

We went on a Friday morning, and the weather was extremely mild for July. The river is beautiful and the trip is very relaxing. The guy that dropped us off and picked us up was terrific. He was very friendly and helpful. You can have a great time and a experience you will remember for years.

I've canoed on different sections of Shenandoah River a number of times over the years, but this was the first time I did the section south of Bentonville, thanks to FRCC. We made our reservation for a canoe only a few days before our trip, to make sure the weather would cooperate. It did, and we went. They shuttled us... More

We decided on the fly to go on the river, but not sure what we wanted to do: kayak? canoe? raft? Showed up, didn't need reservations, we told them what we wanted, our experience level and the time we had to spend on the water and they were like "No problem! Here you go..." and got us into a canoe,... More

I love kayaking, and I wanted a sit on top tandem kayak. I wish it was self baling so take a sham wow with you. The put in and take out were flaw less, the guide gave perfect instructions. I swamped the boat the first rapid (they are very mild) and my butt was wet the rest of the way.... More

Took a 7 mile ride on a 4-person raft (3 ladies total). The folks at Front Royal Cane were great to work with, made everything clear and easy. We got a ride to our drop-off, a brief explanation about using the raft, and set out on a beautiful trip down the Shenandoah. There were very few people on the river... More

Having never kayaked before and holding a pretty substantial fear of rapids, I was pretty apprehensive about taking a solo trip down the river. The staff was friendly and reassuring, giving me plenty of tips and personal stories to calm my nerves. This river trip turned out to be one of the highlights of my vacation: the river was calm...

We rented a tandem kayak for a 7-mile ride. The service was excellent, equipment was well kept and the experience well-managed. The team was friendly, very knowledgeable and happy to help. We enjoyed the free granola bars too! After a 2-hour ride down the river...with a few exciting moments enjoying the "rapids" (easy!) and taking in the views and wildlife...we... More

My husband and I rented a canoe this past weekend, and had a great time. Front Royal Canoe provided the canoe, the paddles, the lifejackets and drove us upstream to start. The whole process was very smooth. We put the canoe in about 11.5 miles up and had a relaxing, scenic paddle down. The river was peaceful and beautiful, esp.... More
