Top 10 reasons for choosing Us
  • Experience
    We were the first company in the Hocking Hills to see tourism as viable resource. When we opened in 1976, the area’s major industry was manufacturing. Three decades later tourism has become the most important commerce. Today the industry empowers over 100 businesses and employees over 982 people. We have been owned and operated by the same owners for 40 years.
  • Best Equipment
    We are proud to offer the best brands in the paddlesports industry. We only use Jackson, Old Town and We-no-nah canoes and kayaks. The Old Town Discovery canoes have comfortable backrests at no additional cost. Also we have a great selection of kayaks, perfect for the beginner or the novice kayaker.
  • Location
    Hocking Hills has become one of Ohio’s top tourist destinations. It is easy to see why since the area has nine breathtaking state parks that link hundreds of trails together. In addition to the parks, Hocking Hills has grown to include numerous outdoor activities including canopy tours, ATV rentals, horseback riding and bicycle trails. With so much to do being centrally located in the Hocking Hills is ideal. Our combined 200 acre facility is within minutes of the most popular state parks and outdoor attractions.
  • Affordable
    Why not be the family hero since our prices are so affordable? Take the family (two adults and two kids) on a 5 mile canoe ride for less than $35. For an all day event do the Fun Package for $31 a person. Call up your old college roommates or recruit your coworkers because 12 people are all you need for a discount. (It is ok if you do not know or like most of them)
  • Special Packages
    Packages are popular because they save time and money. We offer superzip package, family fun package, and horseback package. It feels good to save money.
  • Riverside Campground
    You will not find a more pristine and natural campground in the Hocking Hills. Our Riverside Campground borders the Hocking River in a heavily wooded 83 acres. Most sites have access to swimming and or fishing. The campground also provides a private beach area for our customers. If you are looking for a campground that provides a total outdoor experience we have the campground for you!.
  • Best Trips
    The best Hocking River trips means a slowly increasing distribution of miles and time to ensure you get the adventure that is right for you. Crocketts Run to Livery is 5 miles and 1-2 hours, Natural Rockbridge to Livery is 7 miles/ 2-3 hours, Clear Creek to Livery is 11 miles and 3-5 hours and finally, Rush Creek to Livery, is 19 miles and 10 hours. Each expedition increases just enough so you are on the river for the desired amount of time.
  • Family Owned
    There is a difference between being family owned and being operated by an outside corporation. Outdoor adventure is not only what we do, it is all we do. Every decision is made by us with our customers in mind. More than likely you will meet the people that have worked hard to keep the canoe livery in operation for so long. You can even engage in conversation on why they started the canoe livery. (What the heck were they thinking?)
  • Facilities
    Facilities are important. We can accommodate any group of any size. We have two modern shower houses and two picnic pavilions free of use to all of our customers
  • Fun Customer Service
    So What? Every company has some sort of equipment, every company has a “location” and every company has a “facility”. If all the above are the same, then one aspect stands out: customer service. Hocking Valley Canoe Livery believes that since canoeing and kayaking are fun, service should be offered that way too. We will not put your in front of a generic safety video before your departure; instead we prefer hands on instruction, passionate canoeists teaching you the basic paddle techniques, the type of wildlife to expect and everything in between. On the shuttle to river destinations, we discuss historic landmarks, the Natural Rockbridge and the Hocking Canal. Customer service starts before you sign up for a trip, before you set foot in the parking lot and before you make the initial reservation. Customer service starts the minute you find out about us. We strive to answer all emails and phone calls within the same day and provide you with the best information so you can make the most of your time in the Hocking Hills, even if it is not booking with us.
