Paddling fun on the Yadkin River

Floating and/or paddling down the river in a kayak or canoe is incredible fun AND you get a work out in the process! Try paddling up stream a while and you will understand what I mean!

We hope you enjoy KAYAKING, CANOEING & TUBING as much as we do and look forward to meeting many of you along the way! Come check us out in Elkin and enjoy a day the RFRR way! Hope to see you soon.

We are also going to begin offering a small scenic Rustic Riverside Wedding spot for a truly natural, open-air, simple wedding experience on a section of our land beside the river soon! Paddle Sports can be an Add-on to this event, for the couple and/or the folks at their wedding.
