  • Clint V. – “Rhett and his crew are always top notch, they are great with groups of all sizes, we usually float with around 50 boats and the RiversEdge staff is always phenomenal! Would Definitely recommend to anyone.”
  • Aaron B. – “This place is awesome! Really laid back and professional! Great prices too! My family went (maybe not totally prepared) and everyone was so great to our two kids (under 5.) will totally go again!!”
  • Kimberly A. – “Thanks REO! We had such a great time today! Can’t wait to come back and enjoy some kayaking again!”
  • Josh K. – “My first time kayaking, had a great time, friendly staff, only had one little snag with not having enough single-person kayaks when we arrived at the drop point but not enough of a problem to put a damper on a really good experience.”
  • Aaron B. – “This place is awesome! Really laid back and professional! Great prices too! My family went (maybe not totally prepared) and everyone was so great to our two kids (under 5.) will totally go again!!”
  • Melissa P. – “Took my 3 year Old Twins kayaking yesterday for Mother’s Day! Was a great day on the water, my Girls love going. Great way to spend a day with family. The staff is always so great and the kayaks in great shape.”
  • Tammy S. – “Rivers Edge is the only place we ever go. It’s the best!! Very friendly, accommodating staff.”
  • Dick K. – “My wife and I decided to celebrate our 47th anniversary by kayaking the Little Miami! And we used RiversEdge Outfitters to do it. They have the prettiest wee place just a few miles north of Waynesville with friendly guides who helped us have the time of our lives. They got us upriver and helped us launch into a veritable paradise of wilderness sights and paddling. Some time later we showed up downriver loaded with lots of happy memories. Thank you, RiverEdge Outfitters for a wonderful gift! PS: We passed any number of happy rafters (one family of six, another group of 5-7) and kayakers along the way. They were ALL smiling!”
  • Sara P. – “Went yesterday morning and loved it! Very nice staff and very nice equipment!”
  • Kristen T. – “I’ve been to most of the liveries in the Dayton area and this is by far the best. It is definitely not the closest to us but well worth the extra drive. Thanks for everything we had so much fun on Friday!!! It was my friends 8 yr old daughters first trip on the river and she can’t wait to go back. The girls in the office were very sweet and our driver (who was also our take out helper at the end of the trip) was just as friendly. I really can’t speak enough praise. Rivers edge always does a phenomenal job cleaning out the debris before and during the season and it is so clean and safe only on their part of the river (if you go to any other livery you will know what I mean). When its busy the short trip is every half hour so you aren’t stuck waiting and the canoes, kayaks and buses are clean, newer, and comfortable.”
  • Amanda G. – “Had a lot of fun I’ll be back very soon hopefully a lot over the summer!”
  • Amanda C. – “Had a great time ! With the family and friends!!yay”
  • Jill L. – “It was my first time kayaking & I will DEFINITELY be going again!
  • Glen P. – “Been canoeing on the Little Miami River for over 50 years rivers edge by far the best canoe livery on the river always great staff great equipment and great bathrooms at the end”
  • Jessica S. – “I have been here so many times! My son and I just love this place. The staff is so friendly, and helpful with putting our canoe in the water for use, and helping use get out of the water at the end! Their canoes are in good condition as well. There are many places to stop and get out of your canoe and swim . . .  and eat (so pack a lunch)!”
  • Andy L. – “I’ve been working with urban youth for about ten years, and taking groups canoeing almost every year. It is by far the most fun our kids have. So many have never even left the city, seen a canoe, or spent time anywhere in but in their dangerous neighborhoods. When we arrive, the enthusiasm is unreal. Their hearts are changed, many from anger, to fascination, and wonder. We get to see LARGE families or turtles sometimes, Herons, a myriad of Ohio’s wildlife as the river is CLEAN, and always super refreshing!!! A huge thank you to Rhett and his very helpful crew, for making this years trip an experience we will look forward to REPEATING, soon….We LOVE REO!!!!!!”
  • Olivia H. – “We had a group of 12 and every single one of us had an absolute blast! It was an absolutely perfect day and the area was beautiful! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and everyone!!”
  • Jeff J. – “Only Livery I use! Always a Great Day @ River’s Edge Outfitters!”
  • Paul M. – “I have been going here for over 10 years. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They always have new equipment. This part of the river is my favorite. Less traffic than the other places. Very relaxing. The staff does a great job of keeping the river as clear of fallen trees as they can.”
  • Nikki M. – “Best livery on the Little Miami River! Equipment, staff, efficiency…your only job is to get on the water and enjoy the day your way! Two thumbs up!”
  • Tara M. – “Best equipment on the Little Miami. Accommodates large groups very well. All around great place to rent from. I will not go anywhere else!”
  • Wess K. – “Great place to go out on the river awesome family that go above and beyond to make sure you have a great day on the river A PLUS Rhett”
