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. WARNING Our address does not work well in many GPS units, please refer to directions page for details. 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.

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 watch our video about river levels to learn more.   

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.
