Wonderful People - great three day canoe
Sep 2020
The folks at Raquette River Outfitters are outstanding. Sam and Ann are just very helpful and communicate very well.
I've worked with a few outfitters over the years and you can tell the care these folks take in making sure their customers are taken care of.
We had a great three night canoe from Long Lake to Raquette River to Tupper Lake. Of course the weather was beautiful in the fall and the leaves were just beginning to change.

Great, but not convenient.

Equipment and personnel were great. Only concern was getting to the launch area. Had to park on the side of a street and walk down an embankment and a slightly muddy trail.

Awesome Adirondack Canoe Trip
Jun 2020 • Family
I highly recommend these guys. Anne and Rob both helped us have a great time with our canoe rentals. Anne was extremely patient with me as I changed the number of people in our party twice the day before our trip. Rob drove the canoes to the drop off point and carried them to the water by himself. He then gave us some valuable tips pertaining to our route. I then realized I wouldn’t have enough gas to get back to town, so Rob left a full 5 gallon gas can under my car for when we returned! Great company- they will hook you up!

Everything You Need - Knowledgable and Professional
Aug 2019 • Family
My 10 yo son and I booked a canoe and camping equipment for a 3 day point to point river camping trip in August 2019. Our dog came on the trip with us.

The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Prices are very reasonable. And the equipment they rent is high quality.

They also have a store with ultra cool boating and camping gear. I could have dropped $5000 in a heartbeat.

Bottom line is you could show up with nothing and they can completely kit you out with all high quality gear you might need.

We wanted to make our own way and not use a guide. They recommend some different routes that were suitable for our abilities.

Then, they loaded our gear, took us to a place to park our car (where we would exit the river) and drove us to the drop in point.

I highly recommend this company and will be using them again.

wonderful people with lots of experince and knowledge
Aug 2019
i bought the wrong boat from a less exerienced dealer. They helped me get into the right boat. Very knowlegable and even better really great peoiple. You can buy a boat anywhere but not necessarily from the right place. I drove nine hours and don't reget it. Their knowledge of the available products really made a difference.

Thank you!

We had a tremendous experience with RRO. After accidentally leaving a piece of equipment at home, Anne opened up the store for us after business hours, which really helped us get out of a bind.

We had unfortunately made the mistake of planning our canoe trip with another outfitter due to me overlooking RRO online. Despite using a different outfitter, Anne extended herself and offered helpful information about our route. We also learned that RRO was much more affordable (about half the cost) and better run than the other other outfitter after it was too late.

If you are interested in using an outfitter to plan or provide equipment for your trip, do not hesitate to use RRO. We made the mistake of using St. Regis Outfitters, which did not mail us a map that we paid for ahead of time, required us to drive back the canoe, screwed up the rope/fastening equipment delivery to secure the canoe to the top of our van, and charged us a pretty steep amount. Thank you RRO for all of your help. By the way, they have a fanstasic store.

Very pleased!

We were helped quickly with all of our questions answered. Took a couple hour kayak ride down the Raquette River with kids in two tandem kayaks. Really enjoyed ourselves. Prices are much lower than some tourist traps places and the staff care about their customers and the Adirondacks. Don’t hesitate!

Great service, friendly, helpful w nice selection of canoe/kayaks and SUPs
Jul 2019 • Family
My husband rented a SUP from RRO for a recent week in the area-- they set him up with a board that was appropriate for what he wanted to to/matching his size and skills. They are knowledgable, great service, very flexible. He was able to drop off the equipment after hours rather than rushing and missing part of our day. Reasonable pricing. Reading the reviews, makes me want to tap into their area knowledge more next time and do a bit more far-flung paddling.

Up a creek without a paddle
Jul 2019 • Family
1. Forgot kayak paddle-
Problem solved they had the perfect replacement paddle better than ours at home
2. Torrential rain and a leaky tent-
Problem solved rented the perfect easy to put up eureka tent big enough for 2 teens that at this point were sick of each other.
The owner was kind,knowledgeable and very accommodating.
Highly recommend this company
