Canoe & Kayak Rentals Columbus

Directions From Columbus

Rivers Edge is an easy drive from anywhere in the Columbus area and only about an hour from downtown via I-71 South. We are fortunate to offer canoe, kayak and raft trips on the Little Miami River, a National and State designated Scenic River. The Little Miami is the premier paddling river in all of Ohio, maintaining an excellent level and flow throughout the summer. It offers excellent water quality and beautiful natural beaches for swimming and wading. Rivers Edge offers only the highest quality canoes, kayaks and rafts for your enjoyment.

Directions From Columbus:

  • Take Interstate 71 south to Exit 65 onto US Route 35 (Washington Courthouse/Xenia Exit).
  • Take Route 35 west toward Dayton and Xenia for 21 miles
  • Take US Route 42 south (Lebanon exit).
  • Rivers Edge is 8 miles south on the left.
