We offer a variety of single day and multi-day river based camping trips. We are the oldest and most experienced outfitter operating on the Upper James River and have been safely running paddle trips since 1978. We maintain the largest kayak and canoe rental fleets in this part of the state with lots of types of canoe and kayak models to choose from.
