The young lady who checks you in is great after that it goes downhill. We made a reservation but were directed to wait for a canoe by a river landing after waiting 30 minutes the rest of the staff who you really have hard time finding reluctantly brought some more canoes down by truck. The river is nice but appeared to have a lot of beer drinkers and hell raisers along the way. When we ended our trip again, there were people from Elk River Canoe there but mass confusion and no one is really in charge. We finally just jumped on a van and left after one Elk River Canoe person begged for three more drunks to get on the van. No one ever asked our name and if someone were left on the river I don’t think they would ever know you are missing. Very poorly run.

I thoroughly enjoyed paddling a canoe with a large group from my church. The canoe rental process went smoothly. It is a somewhat long walk from the rental building to the actual put-in spot. If it has rained recently, this walk will be muddy. Fortunately, the rental operators bring the canoes down to the river for the paddlers.

We have seen a lot of good fun and good people here. The river always has people flowing down it, several areas to stop and admire. All around a beautiful area that is a must see.
