Six Kayak Spots For Smooth Sailing This Summer


Looking for some fun on the water this summer? Check out these spots.


Green Acres Kayak

Green Acres Kayak awaits you along the Whitewater River in Harrison. Offering kayak outings of different distances–three miles, five miles, and eight miles–an entire day can be made out of the trip. Even head to shore periodically to unwind at the beaches along the river. 

10465 Suspension Bridge Rd., Harrison, (513)353-4770

Morgan’s Canoe Livery

Float down a remote segment of the Little Miami River with the help of the first livery to set up shop along the river. With the absence of towns in a six mile radius, immersion into nature is effortless. And if the calls of unscathed nature leave you rapt, consider the overnight options with their riverside cabins and campgrounds. 

5701 OH-350, Oregonia, (513) 932-7658

Loveland Canoe & Kayak

Venture into the heart of Loveland to set off on an adventure down the Little Miami River. With single day rentals for a fun day trip, or season-long passes, Loveland Canoe & Kayak has your urge for exploration handled. And after a day of paddling and lounging, check out downtown Loveland’s many shops and restaurants.

174 Karl Brown Way, Loveland, (513) 683-4611

Scenic River Canoe Excursions

Just slightly removed from Historic Old Milford, Scenic River Canoe Excursions is a perfect launching point to get the best of both the Little Miami River’s natural wonders and the comforts of a charming town. And perhaps consider sneaking a minor detour for food and drinks at Little Miami Brewing Company

4595 Round Bottom Rd., Milford, (513) 576-9000

Tippecanoe and Kayaks Too

Now come on…this option deserves its flowers based on name alone. Endeavor down the Great Miami River for five miles with your choice from a strong assortment of boat designs, including single and double-person kayaks and multiple-passenger canoes. Or keep it extra simple and chill with a basic tube. 

7958 Harrison Ave., Miamitown, (513) 290-8574

Winton Woods Harbor Boathouse

Looking to switch it up from the down river excursion? Check out the Winton Woods Harbor Boathouse to rent a rowboat, pedal boat, canoe, kayak, or stand-up paddleboard for use on the harbor’s tranquil water. Not to mention the over 2,500 acre park waiting to be explored by foot if your heart desires. 

801 Lakeview Dr., Winton Woods, (513) 931-1849
