We rented a canoe that was big enough to fit 2 adults and 2 kids. It could fit more as we saw a couple with 3 kids and a dog. Great adventure for peace and quiet loving people. Enjoyed our trip down the Green River. Usually takes 3 hours but the current was faster and we got a little competitive... More

We decided to go rent a couple kayaks for a Green River trip. The owner was very helpful at alleviating the concerns of my wife who had never been kayaking before. The kayaks were in good shape and the Green River was amazing. We saw a lot of wildlife and the current on the river was moving pretty well, so... More

Very friendly staff set us up with 2 canoes for 6 people. Parked at pull out point and we were shuttled to the drop in point. Did fine even with very little previous canoe experience. I would highly recommend this company.

First canoe trip with the kids. Think they had fun .... Well maybe not after the canoe tipped over. 😀 Great staff and location for those first time. Must do again.

We rented a two person kayak from this company and the staff was very friendly and prices were reasonable. We took the 7.5 mile trip. You follow them in your vehicle to the ending point at green river ferry and then they take you by van to he starting point and they helped carry the kayak down to he river.... More

It was a beautiful ride down the Green River. Be prepared for zero civilization for about 4 hours. No issues on the river! You do have to paddle. The river won't take you. It was longer than I anticipated. There wasn't much wildlife to see and the water was murky green, aptly named. But the part that gives this a... More

We stopped at another closer canoe rental stop first and the staff was very rude, space was not clean...yuck! Decided to keep driving and find another spot and so glad we did!! Staff could not have been more friendly and welcoming!! Great shop area and very reasonably priced. Green River is a beautiful trip and they were waiting for us... More

Great staff, very accommodating and very friendly staff. Our group rented 4 total canoes and we had many small children in the group (8 adults and 10 kids under the age of 9). Staff was so helpful in getting us all started and running. Beautiful day trip down green river, felt like we were in an untouched part of nature.... More

The staff took the time to make sure my teenage kids were comfortable with the program...both wear glasses so purchased lanyards to assure no loss...Green River had an island or two to explore and a cave you could paddle into...you traveled at your own pace--- start earlier if you want to take longer..be sure to take water and snacks/ meal...

We did the 7.5 mile trip. All staff was very nice and gave good directions on what to do with equipment afterwards. Gave good tip on where to find a little cave on the trip. Seen lots of wildlife. Took about 3 hours. Because they have you drop your vehicle off at the take out spot before hand we didn't... More
