Perfect Afternoon

First time renting a canoe from Taylor’s Falls and it was a breeze. We reserved our canoe online and the website was easy to use and has lots of great info and pictures. Day of our paddle we showed up, checked in, staff were friendly, helpful, laid-back. We had a great time. Gorgeous weather, beautiful scenery, helpful staff. Overall, a great experience!

Great Family Kayaking

We arrived with the shuttle from the campground around 11:30. The driver of the shuttle was a very courteous young man who helped us get life jackets situated. All 7 of us (2 adults, 2 teens, 3 younger kids) enjoyed our time on the water. Such a great experience. The shuttle service makes the day on the river so relaxing. Highly recommend them!

Loved It

We booked online, checked in, and were quickly on the water. The kayaks, life jackets, and paddles were ready to go at the edge of the river. We enjoyed the water on a beautiful day. Wading, swimming, and fishing were welcome activities. A great time was had by all. Staff were at the landing when we arrived. The shuttle bus arrived quickly.

Breathtaking Views

The trip was beautiful! We were nervous taking two small children on a 7 mile canoe ride but there were plenty stops along the way to rest and enjoy the water or a sandy beach. The views were amazing and we will be talking about this for years to come. The shuttle was timely and the helpful staff gave us clear directions and tips on where to stop.

Fun Adventure

Online booking was super easy! Checked in and we’re in our tandem kayak within five minutes. The 7 mile paddle was great and took a bit shy of three hours. We got to the landing and were shuttled back to the beginning quickly. Plenty of sand bars to stop and rest if we wanted to. This will be our new annual adventure!
