“Go Play Outdoors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

The best outfitters ever. Family owned and operated, and they make everyone else feel like family, and treat them like family. Year-round events. Kayak excursions, live music on the beautiful front porch with one of the most scenic views of the Susquehanna. Lock 2 Cafe has an adequate selection of light fare and is always delicious. On paddle nights with dinner following in the Rookery, you will think you are dining at a Top Notch fine dining restaurant. Liz loves to cook and does an awesome job, using local produce when she can, cooking healthy but very, very tasty. And her presentation is always perfect. If you are renting or buying outdoor equipment, this is where you need to go. You will get the best equipment, best prices, and experienced people to demonstrate use of such equipment. And don't forget to pet the family pets (dogs) who are usually there, and such a wonderful part of the place.

“Great older family fun"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2011

If you have active kids, this is a great way to break-away from the museums and typical attractions. We rented two kayaks (a double and a triple) and had a wonderful time. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful and we would do this again. This is a memory maker!
