Playing around on the lake is fun, but 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 AND TUBING as much as we do and look forward to meeting many of you along the way and hope to see you soon! Come check out the outfitter in Elkin and enjoy a day the RFRR way!
