I had 18 grandchildren ages 3 to 25 years old. Parents and kids got to play together. Stefanie was very good with her instructions and patient with a large group.

We had such a fun time!!! It’s a perfect location. It’s at the mouth of the river, so you can paddle down the calm river or go out on the lake. Prices are great. Stefanie is wonderful! Be flexible on time.

Myself and my wife rented kayaks for 2 hours and it was great. The river was easy to navigate and there were no motor craft on the river which made it quiet enough to see eagles and a moose!!! Staff was great and knowledgeable and...More
