Good value with Groupon deal. (Nearly 1/2 the price of local comp.) That said... of the 4 boats we rented, 2 needed some jimmy-rigging (broken seat-back strap rivets) to operate properly. Not a big deal, just be advised you should give the craft a once over before setting off. Owner is a bit curt, but if you seek a good deal on a great river, you can push past that.

Had a good time taking the family on our first kayaking voyage. Good service, good value. If you’ve never done it before make sure you do the beginner 1.5 or three hour trip max.

What amazing river! It's fun and keeps you on your toes(lower river). It was so much fun,we will definitely be coming back. The shuttle was easy to find (after fighting the traffic of new students checking in).Mike k. Was so helpful and gave great coustomer service. I appreciate how he gave us instructions on how to find the take out point. Helped with my water logged kayak as well. Thank you.

The scenery was breathtaking! We did the lower Kinni trip, very challenging particularly due to several fallen trees, however well worth the price of admission. The river is gorgeous, clean and refreshingly cold. Loved It!!!

About Kinni Creek Lodge and Outfitters

Wisconsin-based Kinni Creek Lodge and Outfitters, established at the turn of the century, introduced everyday people of all ages and walks of life to the unspoiled forests and sparkling blue waters of the Kinnickinnic River valley. What began as a nature outpost offering guests six rental canoes and three rooms, soon expanded into a spacious resort with a fleet of over 250 kayaks.

Today, Kinni Creek is spread across 180 feet of private, scenic shoreline along the Kinnickinnic River. The resort boasts over 250 kayaks for rent, a fly shop and fly-fishing school, and vacation cottage and fly-fishing lodge. Everyone from corporate camping outings to students and youth groups to families of vacationers commune with nature as they kayak past the bluffs and prairies of the Kinni, fly-fish for trout, or relax in a rustic bed-and-breakfast chalet or vacation cottage available for rental year round.
