It was a great experience! Allow for several hours to spend on the river. There are several places to stop along the way and get out for a few minutes. Pack a snack or lunch if you want to make the most of your day. Overall, it was a fun family day!

Make sure to bring lunch and a blanket so that you can pull over on a sanddune and enjoy the day.

Great family outing or go with a group of friends. Wear plenty of sunscreen & tennis shoes that you don't mind getting wet. We packed a cooler with beverages & Larsen's landing provided the rest. We had a blast!

Nobody would return my phone calls, nobody contacted me to verify my online reservation, they never bothered taking my name. When we showed up to the dumping ground they call their facility, nobody was around. They canceled without letting us know

From Our Editors

Though Larsen's Landing Outfitters has always been family owned, the stretch of wilderness under its care has two additional overseers: a pair of eagles. The birds patrol 30 acres of sheltered trails, two open fields, and miles of marshes, watching visitors as they paddle rental canoes and kayaks down the pristine Kishwaukee River, which has been rated as one of the three cleanest rivers in the state. Visitors aren't alone, though. Beavers, turtles, otters, and sandhill cranes make their homes on the bank, sharing the shore with endangered black terns and mulberry wing butterflies. They move amidst towering trees, including the sycamores that gave the river its name, a Potawatomi word for river of the sycamore.

Like a grumpy scorpion, the river's flourishing ecosystem benefits from minimal and respectful human contact. Larsen's Landing Outfitters preserves this status while still permitting visitors to explore the environment. The staff plans canoe, tubing, and camping trips with package options, from tutorials on steering a boat to picnic buffets. Travelers can park their vessels at any point to indulge in a swim, go fishing, or relax on a sandbar—and at overnight sites, campfires and pig roasts imbue the air with nostalgic, smoky aromas.
