Fun!

We are now open 7 days a week with trips each day from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, weather and river level permitting!

 

Our Location

Canoe and Kayak rental reservationRivers Edge Outfitters is located on 45 acres of beautiful riverfront property along one of the least crowded and most secluded sections of the Federal and State Designated Scenic Little Miami River.

Rivers Edge Outfitters is conveniently located just 30 minutes from Dayton, 45 minutes from Cincinnati and a quick one hour drive from Columbus. We are between Bellbrook and Waynesville on U.S. Route 42.

Whatever your pace, we have the ideal canoe or kayak rental trip for you. We also offer two sizes of rafts that are a great way to experience the river.

We are proud to offer the best rental equipment available. While some of our competitors are still renting old aluminum canoes, we rent only the best canoes including Old Town Discovery’s, Wenonah, and our newest addition Paluski; that has a comfortable third seat built in for your third adult or one or two small children.

OPEN FOR WEEKDAY AND  WEEKEND TRIPS EVERY HOUR ON THE HOUR 10 -4.

Be sure to arrive 30 to 45 minutes before your trip start time.

About the Weather

Please note that our hours are weather dependent, particularly in the spring or fall. Even during great weather conditions our hours can be affected by the river level. We recommend you read our informative blog post discussing what river levels mean before your next adventure with RiversEdge.

Improvements at REO

We have made a lot of improvements here at RiversEdge Outfitters.  All of them with one thing in mind – to make sure you have more fun than ever when you come to REO to canoe, kayak or raft.  Let’s let Nick tell you all about the improvements in this video.

Kayaking is a Lot of Fun

We believe that we offer the finest kayak rental fleet in the Midwest with kayaks to accommodate most any person, from a 50-lb child to a 300-lb adult.

We offer many different models from Perception, Wilderness Systems, Jackson and Necky.

Our models include both sit-in and sit-on-top kayaks, and both single person and two person (tandem) kayaks.

Most are brand new each year, as we continually sell our kayaks at the end of the season to maintain this level of quality that you cannot find at other rentals.

Never been kayaking? In this video, Rhett takes you on a guided tour of kayaking on the Little Miami River (with lots of video of people having fun kayaking!)

Our facilities are the nicest on the river and include a spacious deck, lounging and refreshment area. We also have restrooms and changing areas available for your convenience.

This being our 32nd season, owners Rhett and Brandy Rohrer are committed to providing you with the best equipment, facilities and service on the Little Miami River. We are confident that this combination adds up to the best value available.

Book Your Trip Online Right Now

You can also get info or make a reservation without prepayment by calling 937-903-6468 or visiting the contact page.

Whether you want a quick trip to get a taste of canoeing or kayaking the Little Miami, or a full-day wilderness adventure, we have the trip for you. See our Rental Rates and Reservations page for details and to book your trip online.

Groups

We have special rates for groups. Discounts on canoe rental rates begin with five canoes. If your group has at least 25 people, you’ll love our Float & Feast package.

 

OUR HOURS OF OPERATION ARE; CURRENTLY OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK AS LONG AS WEATHER AND RIVER CONDITIONS ALLOW.   SEE YOU OUT ON THE RIVER SOON!

Weekdays at RiversEdge Outfitters
Weekdays are great for canoeing, kayaking or rafting. Fewer people on the river means more solitude and a more relaxing time. Plus, weekdays are cheaper than weekends. So come to RiversEdge on a weekday for a whole different experience.
