The staff were very helpful. The river was fun and easy to kayak on and more picteresque than I had imagined. Lots of fun!

If you're a beginner, go when it's warm and not breezy. Then if you roll it as I did, you can continue with your scheduled day. Yes I got wet, but I was able to right the ship so to speak, and enjoy a nice sunny day, learning a new activity.

I am 54 years old and have never been to Genesee Valley Park, what a beautiful area! Paths all along the waterways. The Genesee Waterways Center is a part of the park and appears to be a newer facility. The staff was very helpful. I am not all that bendable and they helped me to get in and out of the kayak. They gave suggestions on which way to go and what to look for a long the way. As this is on the Genesee River, at least to start out with, I am not sure this is for the novice kayaker. We went out on a Friday morning so there was no traffic on the water. It was a picture perfect day and the water was like glass. As this was only our third time kayaking, we really lucked out and had no problems. When the water is really moving in the river, a person could have some issue. It is a great place though, and I do highly recommend it!

It's important to come early to get a kayak!

We didn't have to wait, but if you are there during busy times, there may be a wait for a canoe or kayak.
