I will say it a little secret treasure! Campsites on river. Nice kayaks and canoes! Brought around firewood for us! Was great

I can not say enough good things about this company. They were friendly both times we used them and we couldn't have been happier.

Took the kayak on the Great Miami river.

The Livery - Adventures on the Great (not Grat) Miami.
This was a nice family run place with a small campground. A very nice piece of property on the river which is your exit point. They have plenty of newer equipment, paddles, etc. The drive upriver to the put-in is quick. The have two exit points fairly close to each other the one further down stream is better, as the grade has been greatly reduced and is much easier to exit. Prices were reasonable and were within the going rates in the area. Overall no complaints.

The River
we put in at the south end of Troy OH. The actual put in is nothing more than a steep dirt path through a scrub line of bushes. I am not even sure who owns the property. There were four of us (two couples) we did not ask the Livery operator for assistance, but if you are not confident of your descending skills, you may want to ask for help as it is very steep dirt bank with not a lot of traction.
The river was low due to time of year and lack of rain, but it was very enjoyable. We did the 10 mile trip and it took us a good five hours (we did stop for a picnic lunch) the current was almost non-existent, so you will have to paddle the whole time. Very scenic with several rapids areas which was fun.

Things to look out for
Adventures on the Great Miami has two entrances the one closest to the river is closed off as your ability to safely exit is hampered by poor visibility. The other entrance, and the one you must enter, is not marked at all. So keep your eyes open. If you go west of the river, you went too far.
The campground does not have permanent bathrooms, but I will say they are the cleanest port-a-potties I have seen in a long time.
