I'll always recommend this place! I've never had any issues and they have always been super friendly! It is more of an adventure float as there are some obstacles but I actually enjoy the challenges! So if your up for some fun, laughter, adventure, wild...More

Owner was so disrespectful, all because of a paddle that we paid for. Started saying bad works infront of all the kids, and got in my 15 year old cousins face and started yelling at him. What an amateur trash, definitely never coming back here...More

Had a wonderful time on the Fawn River canoeing and kayaking. Owners were friendly and helpful. We took the 4 hour trip and enjoyed all the country side. Was relaxing but some challenges along the way. Can't wait to do it next time.

Had an awesome time kayaking the Fawn River. T&L Country Canoes was very affordable, and everyone was so nice. Would highly recommend to outdoors enthusiasts!! I'll definitely be going again!

This was our first time here, and we had a wonderful experience! The owner was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We had our 4 year old son in the middle of a 2 person canoe, and we all had a blast!

We took the 2 hour trip on this small but unique Fawn River. Has the feel of a Florida river. Clean, clear, gently flowing thru wetland habitats. The owners were helpful and friendly. His excitement for his river and business was refreshing.
