Kayak and Canoe Shuttle

We have a 6-place trailer and are happy to get your boats to any local landing,
and pick them up if desired. 

Availability may be limited. Feel free to ask for details. Hosts are former Missouri River kayak and camping guides and are happy to provide you with insights gained from their experience. We are also happy to provide basic kayak training in our yard before you leave. 

Please ask for availability and rates. (We no longer provide guide services.) As time allows, we are also a great spot to host a business meeting, luncheon or retreat. 

If you’re interested, please let us know and we’ll check availability.

Stargazing and Bonfires

As the day winds down, head to the outdoor fire pit and patio area, where you can gather around a crackling fire and share stories under the vast night sky.

The patio is furnished with comfortable seating, providing an ideal spot for stargazing and savoring the tranquility of the night.

Special Service

Paddler Shore Lunch

We’ll drop coolers of food and beverages at pre-determined locations for you to conveniently stop and enjoy a meal without packing bulky, heavy coolers.
