More Info:

Vessel: according to the USCG (US Coast Guard), a canoe, kayak, or paddleboard is a vessel. Our base price is on a per vessel charge.

Kids, 12 and under, as extra people in the middle are free. Extra person, 13 and older, add $15.00 plus tax.

Kayaks: Want a solo or tandem kayak? It's the same price as a canoe. We have cockpit (sit-in) or sit - on-top (SOT). Our solos are by Emotion & Perception. Our tandem SOT are by Perception. The tandem cockpits are Old Town brand, Loon and Otters. If you desire to rent kayaks, we need a reservation or you need to check-in at least a half hour early. If you show up at the last minute, we may not have time to switch canoes for kayaks on the trailer.

Prices are based on having the vessel for the day and not length of trip. On all daily runs you can keep the vessel all day. Need to be back to the dock by 5:00 p.m. All prices are plus 7.5% sales tax if applicable.

Reservations: Reservations not needed weekdays and Sundays. We need reservations on Saturdays, holiday weekend Sundays, and during Spring Breaks (see the calendar). Be sure to check-in at least 30 minutes prior to departure in checking in at Arcadia.

Parking: We have a front parking lot and a back lot. On busy Saturdays the front lot will be roped off, directing you to the back parking lot. In either lot, park next to any of the other vehicles to form a row. If your vehicle looks out of place, it probably is. If in doubt, park, and staff will periodically check the parking. Just don't block someone in or triple park. Once you park, leave your gear and coolers in your vehicles and walk to the office to check-in. The bus will pick you up by your vehicle. If you're with a large group, wait for instructions from your group leader or a member of the Outpost staff. On weekdays, all trips leave from the front lot, you'll see the buses.

Camping at the Arcadia Peace River Campground? We are right next door, just walk on over. If your camped in the main campground, you can probably see our back lot. If you're camped in the wilderness area, you might want to drive on over, it's quite a hike. You can also drive your 4-wheelers over to the Outpost to check-in. If you drive over in cars, just head out the Peace River Campground main entrance and turn right onto CR 661. Follow the long, metal fence. We're the second drive on the right, look for the canoe mailbox. If walking over or riding ATVs, look for the Canoe Outpost Gate on your campsite map. It's at the end of Linleigh Lane in the single site area north of the campground office.
