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!!!!!!
