Top-Quality Canoe, Kayak and Rafting Rental Equipment

We offer Old Town, Wenonah, and Paluski canoes for rental as well as Perception Kayaks for your canoe or kayak trip. Those familiar with paddlesports know these names as the finest available. Since upgrading from the standard aluminum canoe years ago we remain the only livery in the Midwest that exclusively offers this top quality equipment.

Many other liveries listed price includes a beat up old aluminum canoe and a $5 premium is added at time of sign-up for the higher quality Oldtown or Wenonah canoe. We prefer a more honest and easily understood price that includes everything, with no add-ons at time of sign-up. We think you will prefer this as well.  Our customers love the Paluski Canoe with a third seat for a third adult, or for one or two children to ride in the middle with their own seat.

The River

The section of river that our trips follow is one of the most secluded and beautiful  sections of the Little Miami River.The Little Miami is the area's only State and National Scenic River. The wooded corridor, excellent  water quality, gentle current and abundant wildlife make the Little  Miami River the region's premier canoeing stream.  We are the only outfitter using this section which keeps it less crowded than other areas like Ft. Ancient, which has several large rentals using the same section of river.  Since all of our trips  are shuttled to an upstream put in, you can float at your own pace  back to RiversEdge Outfitters and your vehicle.

The Service

After more than 33 years in service we are proud to have the most experienced staff on the river. We offer helpful, courteous and knowledgeable advice. We can also provide American Canoe Association certified instruction if you need it.

The Value

This makes RiversEdge Outfitters the best value available. We are committed to being  the best. Take a trip with us and experience the difference that our commitment makes. And remember, we feature only the very best canoes and kayaks from Old Town and Perception --equipment you can expect to pay a premium for at other liveries.
