Fleet expansion

Since 1996, when we started with 32 canoes and 5 kayaks operating off the porch of the Logan Antique Mall we’ve been growing.  Not so much mind you, that when folks get here there still is a good bit of that ole’ family feel to it.   

Our 2014 season was one of the busiest ever.  We saw a few records ‘round here broken.  For the first time, we sold out a string of consecutive Saturdays.  One of those Saturdays set a new bar for most boats put on the river in a single day, at 421.

How deep is the Hocking River?

Well that depends on how much water is in the Hocking River, as well as where in the river you happen to be when you ask that question! 

Fortunately, the United States Geological Survey provides that answer.  The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) started keeping tabs on how much water is in rivers in 1889.  The first river was the Rio Grande in New Mexico to help determine if there was adequate water for irrigation purposes to encourage new development and western expansion. Since then the program has grown.  The USGS currently operates over 7,000 stream gauging stations nationwide.

Got Friends?

Of course you do!  Y'all should get together, do something fun.  I know, a canoe trip down the Hocking river may be just the thing!  We offer a group discount for groups of more than 10 adults.    A greater discount is available for groups of more than 20 adults.  We have a covered porch, a large gas grill, and a great place for your crew to gather before or unwind after the trip.  Very nearby is ice cream, antiques, adventure golf and more.
