Want a cool, relaxing day in the water away from all those electronics? How about an exciting kayak trip down a large river with strong currents and small islands to explore? All can be found on the Blackwater River, and at Blackwater Canoe Rental, you can rent kayaks, canoes, or tubes and paddle or drift down the large crystal clear river. 

After calling ahead and reserving your kayak, canoe, or tube, drive to the end of the river and a guide will meet you. Leave your car at the parking lot and the guide will take you to the launch point. After the guide launches you, you are on your own!  And don’t worry about pace or were to go - just follow the river. You can stop whenever, wherever you want. Blackwater River has pure white quartz sand beaches that are ideal picnicking spots. It also has large bluffs along the river where kids young and old can stop and jump off. 

Pick and choose how long you want to be in the river, from short trips, 1½ -3 hours, to a day trip, 4-6 hours, or the special 1½-day, 2-day, and 3-day camping trips. On the camping trips you will feel like a true adventurer, exploring the Blackwater Preserve and kayaking from campsite to campsite along the beautiful river. 

Blackwater Canoe Rental is a great way to spend your day! Come tube, kayak, or canoe down Blackwater River this summer!

Cool Factors: Cool, clear water, camping, kayaking, canoeing, and tubing
