Paddle Creek Reviews
The very welcoming crew members assisted our party to get our three 2-man kayaks launched and off we paddled. We turned the corner and we were amazed! We felt like we had been transported to kayakers ... more »
I already own a canoe and sea kayak, but I haven’t gotten my newish car racks set up, but didn’t want to miss out on a beautiful fall day paddling. I could rent my solo sit-on-top online with Paddle C... more »
Have floated twice renting from Paddle Creek (one short/quick trip, and recently the long trip). Absolutely zero problems each time, very fun, staff is friendly, supportive, and hospitable. An example: we completed the long trip (which is estimated at 4 hours) in just over 2.5. A quick call to the put-in site and within 30 minutes, we were picked up and returned! As a result of the positive experience, we are toying with the idea of acquiring our own equipment, utilizing Paddle Creek for their parking and transportation, and floating more frequently.
We went on the four hour paddle trip yesterday. The weather was perfect. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The trip down the river is leisurely and laid back. There is ample time to stop along the way and enjoy nature. We saw osprey, hawks, turtles, and a snake.
