Canoe, Kayak and Raft Rentals at RiversEdge Outfitters

How we are Handling Covid 19

After careful thought & consideration, we have created our plan of action related to operating during COVID-19.
 
Regulations are as follows:
-Reservation are no longer required for weekdays, but are still required for weekends.
-We will be offering single kayaks, tandem kayaks, canoes & rafts.
-We will ONLY be offering our 3.5 mile trip at this time.
-Unfortunately, NO dogs due to the State of Ohio Covid Operating Guidelines for Canoe Liveries.
-Unfortunately, NO transporting of privately owned watercraft due to State of Ohio Covid Operating Guidelines for Canoe Liveries.
-FACE COVERING REQUIRED DURING TRANSPORTATION IN THE BUS OR VAN (Due to the State of Ohio Face Covering Order issued 7-23-2020)
-We will be transporting people in vehicles with reduced capacity to satisfy social distancing needs.
-We WILL be sanitizing every life jacket & paddle after every single use.
-While all of the above is standard operating procedures, the reality is that as an OUTDOOR recreation facility, many of our customers are choosing to not wear a face covering when not in a van or bus. While we encourage everyone to maintain the distance between people recommendation, many while in an OUTDOOR ENVIRONMENT do not. If this makes you uncomfortable, we recommend not visiting us during this season, as we do not want you to be disappointed.
 
Please be patient with us as we work out the kinks & try adhere to these very new regulations. Thank you for your patience & loyalty. We really look forward to seeing you again!

Great Reviews

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!

We had the fantastic day on the river yesterday! Your equipment, staff and location are superb for kayaking near Dayton Ohio! Looking forward to coming back again! Thank you!

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!!!!!!
