Canoe and Kayak Trips

We offer 2 different options for canoe and kayak trips down the Boardman River, but they are slightly different than in years past.  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 1 hour you forfeit your deposit.

Cost:

$36 non-guest

$32 guest

  • There is an additional $20 deposit per canoe/kayak required.  This deposit is forfeited if you return with missing or damaged equipment or if you exceed your scheduled time back.
  • Guest rate applies to overnight lodging or camping guest
  • Prices are based on up to 2 people per canoe and 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
$46 guest

  • There is an additional $20 deposit per canoe/kayak required.  This deposit is forfeited if you return with missing or damaged equipment or if you return later than 6pm.
  • Guest rate applies to overnight lodging or camping guest
  • Prices are based on up to 2 people per canoe and 1 person per kayak
