Wonderful, peaceful canoe trip. Interesting and friendly wildlife (a couple hummingbirds enjoyed hanging on our canoe, my leg, and in my hand) and a small cave made this trip wonderful. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of the area.

This was a good choice for a family outing. We had one canoe that fit two adults and two smallish children. The canoe was in good shape, the workers were friendly.

Becky and her staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. The double kayaks for our kids,ages 13 to 10, was suggested by Becky and was an excellent choice. Our family had a great time and left with wonderful memories!!
