Any season, River Bend is a wonderful place for a day of adventure, and River Bend has the equipment to get you enjoying our natural habitat.
Canoe and kayak rentals are available May through October – $15 for the first hour / $5 each additional hour. Kayaks seat one person and canoes will seat two adults or two adults with two small children. Life Jackets and paddles are provided at the time of rental. All rentals are weather permitting and are on a first come, first served basis.
Sometimes after a heavy rain the river is flowing too fast for us to allow boat rentals. You can check the current river conditions here: https://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/uv?site_no=04087240. Scroll down and look at the discharge graph. If the latest value is over 600 cubic feet per second then we are not renting boats.

Boat rentals are from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Rental equipment must be returned to the office before closing time.
