Burke's camp site stands out for its management. From the moment you arrive to when you leave you are catered to a serving attitude staff. The staff will give you advise on almost anything in the area. One of the most outstanding features is lost...More

This place is rustic, basic, and everything we wanted for our self guided trip down the river. Laborious check in process was quickly forgotten once we got in our canoes and kayaks and headed down river. The scenario was varied throughout, plenty of spots to...More

We spent about 3.5 hours paddling down the river and enjoyed it tremendously. My *only* complaint was that 3+ hours of sitting on an aluminum seat (with no cushion) began to really hurt. That aside, it was an amazing experience. Highly recommend this if you're...More

I have been coming here since I was a toddler and it never disappoints! I brought a friend for her birthday and knowing that she was a rookie, I got 2 kayaks instead of 1 canoe. The canoes hold more but the kayaks are sooo...More

Very enjoyable day spent on the Russian River in the warm California sun. We chose a weekday to avoid the crowds, which turned out to be very quiet and peaceful. For a novice the trip wasn't very challenging; but, there are some "adventures" spots to...More

First, they need more people at the river to help you get your canoe. Once we paid and got our instructions we were sent down to the river. The canoes were all chained together and we sat around for awhile until we realized we were...More

We didn't see any people with dogs in their canoes! And if there are dogs at any of the private beaches, canoe renters are not allowed to land there anyway.
