Store

I have always loved to shop in the store, lots of knick knacks. Have ordered food once, it was good. The price of a canoe trip is pricey but an enjoyable experience.

While we have never taken a canoe or tubing trip with Riverside canoes, we love to bike there, visit their shop for all things Platte Lake, Honor, Platte River, jewelry, clothing, Christmas ornaments, etc and get ice cream. They also have a fire ring each evening where we have enjoyed making s'mores or sitting around the fire. Good, fairly kind... More

Hubby and I rented a canoe for the Upper Platte trip. We are experienced canoers so we had our own paddles, seats and life jackets. The check-in process went smoothly and we did not wait long for anything. Matt drove us to the drop off point for our vehicle and took us upstream to put in the river. We were... More

See my review under "Tubing Platte River." Cleaning up the lower Platte our group found broken bottles, sharp edged torn beer cans and bottle caps which pose a risk to waders. Riverside knows what's going on with the drunken shitweasels trashing the Platte who rent from them, but hey, they're making money hand over fist during the summer, so why... More

We had a great time kyayking down the river. The staff was helpful and friendly. They take care of all your canoe/kayak/tubing needs. Nice little store/gift shop. They even allow you to launch your own kayaks and help with logistics for a small fee.

We did the kayaks. The river was clear and beautiful. We went on a Monday and it wasn't busy. Go early to avoid the crowds. No problem with the check in system. Went smoothly. I read reviews and watched their video beforehand, so I knew what to expect. Loon lake is bigger than I thought and deep. The opening to... More

We chose to canoe the Lower Platte. We took our boys for their first trip. We all had a blast. However, we forgot our cooler and snacks, so it got a little long with out a drink, or some munchies. But we'll definitely be back again!

They made the excursion pretty simple and easy for us. We stopped by the day before to see if we needed to reserve anything and were helped tremendously. All in all, our party of 8 rented 2 SUP, a double kayak, and 2 tubes as we had 2 kid SUP with us. They let us know we could fit a... More

I booked our trip a few days in advance, since we were there during the busy summer season. Everything was in order when we arrived. Things were explained well, transportation to the drop off point worked great, and the float down the river was nice. We did the 2 hour float trip. Be sure to wear plenty of sunscreen! We... More
