There are two molded seats for canoeing in comfort. A maximum of a third adult or two small children can be added, sitting on the canoe floor. Our canoes are all Old Town 158 or Wenonah Northfork’s, which have two seats.
Hocking Hills Canoe Livery rates are based on a minimum of 2 people per canoe. There is an extra charge per person after the initial 2 persons per canoe.
Children must be three years of age to participate. Additional age restrictions may apply depending on water level and participant experience.
There are two trip options. Both trips are good for beginners. The Hocking River is generally a calm smooth river with a few riffles, islands and sand bars. The stretch the trips run on is Class I. We transport you upstream and you canoe back to the building and your car with the current. All paddling times are approximate, based on the average time of an average paddler in average river conditions. Both trips run on the Hocking River. Adverse river conditions may make an alternate waterway necessary. Both trips provide great fishing opportunities.
