Loved it! Serenity on the canal, watching birds, turtles and fish.

I enjoyed the easy paddling on the canal surrounded by nature. Otherwise bikes or jogged on the trails next to the canal. There was also an interesting old rail road bridge that... read more

Nice place to canoe or kayak on the canal. Weather was perfect and sunlight lit up the water. Many fish and turtles visible. We try to do this once or twice a year. Always a good time.

I enjoyed the easy paddling on the canal surrounded by nature. Otherwise bikes or jogged on the trails next to the canal. There was also an interesting old rail road bridge that looks like it used to turn to let larger barges and ships pass.

Small rental place with everything you need. You can rent canoes and kayaks to paddle in the river. They also have snacks and beverages.

If you are novice or expert, they are there to help. They explain the type of boat that will be good for you and they get you set. On way back they help you come out. Lots of parking space. Rented multiple times, never had any problems so far.

Canoe in a very special setting. Nature at its best, birds, turtles and fish are all on view. To see those large turtles sunning on a rock and you turn around to see a huge crane just standing there - WOW. The canal sometimes looks like a Lousiana swamp and other times looks like a cranburry bog. This is a... More
