We didn't experience the kayaking or fishing, but we did have a wonderful experience with the lodge. We were in town to do the Twin Cities Tough Mudder, and almost all rooms in the area were booked up for the event. I found this place online and decided to rent out the entire cabin for the weekend. We weren't sure... More

We enjoyed the kayaking trip. However, when we first arrived at the lodge, the lady (not sure if she was the owner or not) was not friendly at all and borderline rude. She seemed annoyed with us from the start, and it was our first time there and first time kayaking. The younger girl who drove us to the starting... More

This place knows their stuff, the staff has a ton of paddling and safety experience, the owner and an employee have spent lots of years as paddling guides around the country. All of these reviews about how the owner is a bad person and staff is unknowledgeable are written by people who CHOSE not to listen to the initial directions... More

I purchased the 6 hour jungle trip for my daughter and I. It said it was for beginners. IT IS NOT FOR BEGINNERS! The river is very fast and rough. There were lots of fallen trees that I got caught up on and lost my kayak many times. I told the owner my daughter and I have never kayaked and... More

What a beautiful river! Kinni Creek Outfitters met and surpassed our expectations. Great service, friendly staff and good instruction on safety procedures. Felt the stress just melt away as we floated down the river.

We did the 3-hour kayak tour. It was amazing! We would definitely return to do it again. The river is a good mix of smooth and fast water. The kayaks provided for the tour were comfortable and nicer than some other kayaking trips we have taken. Unfortunately, we didn't take advantage of the lodge to know what it is like.

Went kayaking for the first time and had an excellent experience! We knew what to expect based on the information provided on the website - we came prepared and had a great time. The scenery is beautiful and the obstacles were just tough enough to still be fun to navigate through. We are novice outdoors people and this is something... More

Great place to stay, cute home, nice hot tub, walking distance to restaurants and bars, great breakfast provided daily. Make sure you take the short 3 hour float. It has some fun rapids and it's a lot easier than the long trip, which includes floating on the big river with all the boats! We had so much fun!! We have... More

We recently used a groupon for the 3-rivers kayaking adventure. Thank goodness we only had to pay half price for this adventure. It was poorly executed. The employee showed up, had us sign a waiver, and handed us our equipment. The paddles weren't in great condition and the life jackets were wet (for $90/person can we at least get a... More

My wife and I were looking for a quick one-night getaway and found this online. Just 45 minutes from our home on the west side of Minneapolis, the Lodge overlooks the beautiful Kinnickinnic River. It's just two minutes from the heart of River Falls, but you'd never know you were so close as it's very serene and quiet. The main... More
