OHIO SALE TAX OF 6.75 % ADDED TO THE ABOVE PRICES

What’s Included In the Price

Here’s what you get when you book a trip with RiversEdge Outfitters:

  • Use of high quality canoes or kayaks, paddles and life jackets
  • Transportation to your starting point, so you can float back to your vehicle and not wait to get picked up after trip
  • Free use of picnic areas
  • The most remote and scenic section of the Little Miami River
  • RiversEdge Outfitters adjoins the 800 acre Spring Valley Wildlife Area

About Our Canoes

Our canoes are top quality Old Town, Wenonah, Mad River or Paluski plastic composite canoes. These are great canoes that some of our competitors will only let you have if you pay more than their published rates. If you don’t pay their premium price, you’ll get an old-fashioned aluminum canoe – the kind that RiversEdge stopped using over 15 years ago!

About Our Kayaks

Thinking about a kayak trip? We have many brand-new Necky, Wilderness Systems, Jackson and Old Town kayaks. We think our kayak fleet is the very best kayak fleet on the river.
