“Tubing on a river is cheap and relaxing for the family”
Reviewed March 29, 2011

Tubing on the Whitewater River at Green Acres Canoe Rental is a great way to enjoy a lazy float on the river. Tubing is relaxing as you just lay back and drift along with the gentle current. When we went we enjoyed some swimming holes and also a large sandy beach where the kids built their sand castles. The float took us about 2 1/2 hours on one day then another time we spent nearly 6 hours because the kids played a long time on the beach and swam. We pack a picnic lunch and bring frisbees and botchy balls. It is a great way to spend the entire day along the river. Green Acres also had placed a coupon that we had printed from their website too that got us some mini-golf for free when we went tubing. I know they regularly place discount coupons on their website for families to be able to take advantage of. Green Acres is family friendly and makes our river trips affordable. We have never been able to go to the movies this cheap.

“Canoeing and kayaking close to Cincinnati.”
Reviewed March 28, 2011

I love kayaking and canoeing on the Whitewater River. Green Acres Canoe and Kayak Rental is close to Cincinnati. Green Acre Canoe and Kayak Rental has canoeing and kayaking rentals near Cincinnati and I highly recommend them. They have large and smaller sit-in style kayaks that are awesome when the water is chilly and they have a lot of small and large sit-on-top style kayaks for during the summer months. We absolutely love their huge variety of sizes and styles. My husband is a large man and needs a larger size, then we have kids that require smaller sizes. We have never seen a kayak rental so affordabale either. Another great thing about Green Acres is that we can just pop in without a reservation and get transported upriver within 1/2 an hour from leaving home! We float back to our car and we always play a round of mini-golf before heading home. We absolutely love Green Acres!

“What a great family place!”
Reviewed March 27, 2011

Being family owned and operated makes Green Acres a true family fun place. They spend a lot of time making sure that the environment is clean and safe so that you can have a wonderful time with your family. Everyone is friendly and helpful. I can't think of a better place to take my family and have a good time!

“Great Place to take the Family”
Reviewed March 27, 2011

The owners and staff of Green Acres Canoe are the best. They have the best mini golf around and the canoe trips along the Whitewater River and the best. We have been coming here for years and will continue for years to come.

“Our favorite place to go for Family Outings!”
Reviewed March 26, 2011

We love everything about Green Acres. So much to choose from for people of all ages to enjoy! All in one location & for reasonable prices! The location alone is simply beautiful with the surrounding country scenery & huge shade trees. There are shelters for picnicking & relaxing while the little ones play a few rounds of miniature golf. And if you want to make a day of it, you can rent a couple of canoes & take a trip down river. The business owners work extra hard at keeping the river banks cleaned up so you can enjoy the beautiful scenery. I can't say enough about the owners of Green Acres. They not only run the business but they also donate their time to helping the community. On two separate occasions they opened up their business to us so we that could host a fundraiser. They went out of there way to help make everything run smooth! Those who attended the fundraiser couldn't stop raving about the great location that we picked because of it's beautiful surroundings and the variety of fun things to do. We like to give our business to business owners who are consistently good and caring people who give back to their community...like those at Green Acres. We're lucky to have such a place to go to.
