We recently rented a canoe on our trip to Luray at the beginning of August. We were staying at a cabin that we had rented down the road. All of the staff was super friendly. We had two small children, and even had our 3 month old puppy with us and they told us to come in and hang out... More

Found this place when researching a visit to the Shenandoah Valley. I love to be on the water, so a paddle down the Shenandoah River was a must. Their user friendly informational website, and 24 hour online reservation system made this paddle enthusiast immediately book our 10 mile canoe trip with this outfitter, especially since they were only 6 miles...

Had an awesome several days canoeing down the river. Weather was beautiful, staff was so accommodating and kind. We have used river outfitters for several years and will be returning again. Perfect day to canoe, fish, use a tree swing along the way and have a picnic lunch.

We reserved the 10:30am tubing on the Shenandoah River and it was incredibly easy. Reservation made, we showed up and were on the water in less then 15 mins (including a short bus ride to the mile marker). Bus was there waiting when we got off the water and brought us right back. It was a very relaxing float down... More

The Summary: Pros: beautiful scenery, staff friendly but rushed when busy, nice river with good balance of having to paddle and just floating, great package including lunch/dinner make it easy to just drive there and then enjoy the day Cons: Visibly and audibly drunk patrons, live music way too loud at dinner preventing easy dinner table conversation Our family of...

we knew it would be busy on a weekend but it was extremely tolerable (and that is not the norm for us). everyone was courteous on the water. the staff was laid back and my only regret was not asking a few more questions. we were unclear on where the "picnic" spot was on the trip. plan on going back!

Friends helped organize this kayak/canoe excursion. Glad we arrived early as it gets really busy as the day goes on. We rented canoes and kayaks to go from station 1 to 8. Water was high and fast. Still ok for kids, but we didn't swim. An employee told us to put out stuff on the bus, but then it almost... More

Went for a canoe trip down the river. Highly affordable--$54 for full a day on the river. Several options of difficulty and duration.

We have been here on two occasions to rent kayaks for the river trip. This time we brought friends who were worried about the conditions and their endurance. We assured them that this was not overly strenuous and they went and loved it! we had beautiful weather and saw lots of wildlife...eagles, beaver, deer and fish. Great memories. *Be prepared...

We stayed for the weekend in the Angler cabin, had a great time, cleaned up, and the following Monday realized our credit card was charged again for some reason. When I called to handle it, the woman on the phone told me it was because we lost a key. We were only given a single key (and door was unlocked... More
