Canoe and Kayak Trips

 

Please be sure to read the ‘Boardman River Description’ so you are aware of what to expect for the below trips.  Canoeing and Kayaking are not recommended for the very young or very novice who are fearful of getting wet or tipping over.

Trips are offered 7 days a week mid-June through Labor Day with shuttles leaving on the hour between 10am and 4pm.  We do not accept reservations, trips are offered on a first come first served basis and we suggest arriving at least 20 minutes prior the hour for sign up.  In the Spring (Mid May through mid-June) and Fall (Labor Day through mid-October) river trips are offered on Saturdays and Sundays (weather permitting.)   During the Spring and Fall seasons Saturdays we still operate on the hour between 10am and 4pm and Sundays we operate on the hour 10am-2pm.

We offer 2 different options for canoe and kayak trips down the Boardman River.  With the recent removal of the dam at Brown Bridge Pond, we are not sending canoes or kayaks beyond the Ranch.  Both options will be put in upstream and end at the Ranch.  They are as follows:

Short Trip

This trip remains the same as in years past.  It is a 4-mile trip and will average about 1.5 hours.  We do provide you with an extra hour for this trip, but if you exceed your scheduled time back by more than one (1) hour you forfeit your deposit.

Cost:

$36 non-guest

$34 guest

  • There is an additional $20 deposit per canoe/kayak required.  This deposit is forfeited if you return with missing or damaged equipment (additional charges may also apply) or if you exceed your scheduled time back.
  • Guest rate applies to overnight lodging or camping guest.
  • Prices are based on up to two (2) people per canoe and one (1) person per kayak.

Long Trip

This new trip will have the same put in and take out spots as the above trip.  It is still 4 miles in length, but the difference is there is no specified time length.  For this trip you need to be off river by 6pm regardless of your start time.

Cost:

$52 non-guest
$50 guest

  • There is an additional $20 deposit per canoe/kayak required.  This deposit is forfeited if you return with missing or damaged equipment (additional charges may also apply) or if you return later than 6pm.
