What about alcohol?

We highly discourage the consumption of alcohol on the river, and you need to know that you can be ticketed on any river in Ohio for an open container violation. Occasionally there are Water Craft Officers on the river that will ticket you for having an open container of alcohol. We also will refuse to rent to anyone who has rented watercraft from us previously and returned intoxicated and disorderly.

Is there an age requirement?

The minimum age is 3 years of age and/or 30 pounds. Our smallest life jacket will fit a child 30-50 pounds.

Can I use a Credit Card for payment?

Yes, we accept Mastercard, Visa, and Discover. You can also make your reservation online, including making payment.

How late can I stay on the River?

We close at 6:30 pm, our last trip is at 4:00 pm and we require that you return by the closing time of 6:30 pm. A late fee of $10.00 per boat, per half hour will be charged. Please keep in mind that our staff does this seven days a week, and would like to leave at normal closing time to spend time with their families and prepare for the next day.

What should I take on the river?

You should leave all valuables in your vehicle or at home. Jewelry is highly discouraged because it can slip or come off if you enter the water and will be lost. You should have a good pair of water shoes because there is a possibility of stepping on sharp rocks while on your trip, we do have water shoes available to purchase. Coolers are okay if you want to take a lunch and have a picnic on one of the many beaches however, we ask that the cooler not be Styrofoam and be medium size to fit in most boats. Glass containers are not allowed. Car keys should not be taken on the river! We have a key rack you may leave your keys on while you are on the river.

How many people can ride in one raft?

The large raft can hold about 5-6 adults of moderate weight, a few more if some are children. The smaller raft is great for up to 4 adults or a family group of a few more with small children.  

How many people can ride in one canoe?

Most of our canoes are designed for two people. We do have special canoes with a third seat in the middle. This allows three moderate weight adults to comfortably fit in the same canoe – total weight of the three should not to exceed 500 pounds. The same 3rd seat canoe will work great for 1 or 2 children to sit in the middle of the canoe with 2 adults. 

How many people can ride in one kayak?

Most of our kayaks are designed for one person. We do have tandem kayaks that are designed for two people. 

Do you shuttle private canoes and kayaks?
Due to insurance restrictions we are not allowed to transport privately owned watercraft on our vehicles, or allow any privately owned watercraft on the property. We cannot allow privately owned watercraft to exit at our takeout. We cannot allow the parking of any vehicles at RiversEdge that are transporting privately owned watercraft. We do want all boat owners to be able to experience to beauty of the Little Miami River by accessing the river at the many public access points. Just 1/3 of a mile above RiversEdge is a public access with a concrete boat ramp, and great parking. This is the access that you should use to float our section of river. It is the Spring Valley Wildlife Area river access located on Roxanna Road, just off of Route 42.

Additional adults are $20.00 per adult, and additional children are free.
