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 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.

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 30th 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.

Yes! Yes! Yes! This wonderful taste of summer is going to be with us through the weekend, so RiversEdge Outfitters will be open this weekend for canoeing, kayaking and rafting fun. Bring your friends, bring your family. And don't forget that Sunday is Mother's Day, so treat her to something extra special this year and bring her to RiversEdge Outfitters.

The water on the river is perfect - clear, swift and 70 degrees with air temperatures rising into the mid-80s. It just doesn't get much better than this!

We will be running trips from 10 am to 3 pm Saturday and Sunday.
