2020 Season Postponed due to Covid19.  Stay tuned, we will let you know when we can operate.

Rocky Forest River Run is just minutes outside downtown Elkin just off Highway 268 on the Yadkin River.  We offer kayak rentals, river tube rentals and canoe rentals. We are a Paddle Sports full service outfitter, renting and selling other items you may need in our shop too.

We offer trips through Wilkes, Surry & Yadkin Counties.  Shuttle service is offered for those who have their own kayaks.  Call ahead or book online, because Reservations are Required.
