Overview

We are a small family owned canoe rental company with free shuttle service. Our family has lived on the St. Croix for over 60 years! Now, after decades of St. Croix River canoe experience, we have opened to the public. We easily have the the lowest rates and are small enough to be able to provide personal service and helpful advice.We provide canoes, kayaks, life preservers and paddles. Our free shuttle service blows the competition out of the water in the areas of punctuality and fun!Owners Joel Carlson, Kevin Carlson and Andrew Carlson

Had a great time on the river, was really easy to find and after a short shuttle ride we were on the water, and when we were done we were back to our car on no time. A really great deal, would definitely use again...More

We had so much fun kayaking with Riverwood! The staff was fantastic and it was super convenient! There’s a shuttle that takes you right to the river and brings you right back to your car. We would highly recommend renting from them!

Andrew was very friendly. It’s a smaller company so it’s a much more personal experience. Overall, a great experience!
