The people are very nice here and getting into kayaks or canoes very easy with their new ramp. Prices are reasonable. It’s a little challenging to find if you don’t know where they are located, but worth the find! If you have your own kayaks...More

We are glad to hear you enjoyed our River and Rail trip. The water was high, as the dam in town was open. We do caution our paddlers when this happens. They have since closed the dam, so the water is receding.

The water is a little above average right now. The river is still calm and easy to paddle.

We are not offering the River and Rail trip this fall. We do have the 4 hour North Street Bridge trip, which is a 71/2 mile paddle down stream. We drop you off at the bridge and you paddle back to Tickner's.

We have been down the river 3 times and at this point in time, the black flies aren't so much as a problem as the mosquitoes. Once we put on the bug spray we were OK.
