Kayak Rental

Service Description

General Info: Here at Root River Outfitters we offer amazing Canoe and Kayak adventures. Our canoe and kayaking trips run on the most scenic stretches of both the North and South branches of the Root River. We offer two separate experiences. Our shortest route is a self-guided trip that runs on the south branch starting at the Old Barn Resort and ends just above the dam located at the Riverview campground in town. This trip takes approximately 2.5-3 hours at a steady float. This trip is offered everyday at 10am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm. Our long route that we offer is also a self-guided trip that runs on the north branch starting at Moens Bridge and ends at the public access on Highway 16. This trip takes approximately 4.5-5 hours at a steady float. This trip is offered also everyday at 9am and 11am. All rentals come with a paddle, life jacket and shuttle service. What to Expect: - Once you arrive in Lanesboro, please park your vehicle on the street in-front of our location. We will then have you come in, sign paperwork and give further instructions. - Following instructions, we will then have you follow our shuttle van to the ending point of the trip where we will ask you to park your vehicle. We then give you a ride, along with the canoes/kayaks, paddles, and lifejackets, to the beginning point of the trip. - After that, your only job is to enjoy the float back.
