Super friendly staff despite the many customers abound! We used them to "place" our car at the beach, and then kayaked down the Platte River. Great time!

They have the rentals. Tons of tubes and kayaks and canoes. Very busy and well trained staff and well run operation. They explain everything and so a very nice job. Anything you need or forgot they have a well stocked store to sell.

Riverside Canoe is your basic outfitter where they put you in and take you out! We recommend to pa Del before 9am as the crowds become really busy as the day goes on

So this place has the canoe biz down. Check in, pay, drop your car at the finish line, they pick you up, then launch you in the river. Pretty smooth process. It is usually a mad house here, tons of people with very little parking....More
