Canoe/Kayak on the beautiful Elkhorn Creek
Experience one of the most beautiful waterways that the central United States has to offer! This historically important body of water has something for everyone - fiesty smallmouth for anglers, riffles and rapids that are a blast for beginners and experienced alike, wildlife in abundance, fresh and cool water, swimming, and a place to make memories while being connected to nature in a way that's hard to replicate anywhere else.
All Elkhorn Creek trips are unguided. You may launch with other people, but you are not required to stay together as a group.
The types of boats available for rental on the Elkhorn are:
Outdoor Adventure Kids Camp
RockCastle Bourbon, named for the county that is home to our limestone rich mountain spring water, is a smooth, sweet bourbon handcrafted using local Kentucky corn and wheat. This small batch spirit is bottled at barrel strength and displays distinct flavor notes of toffee, caramel and vanilla.
Stand-Up Paddleboarding on the KY River
Come try out the newest and hottest craze within the paddlesports world! Stand-Up Paddleboarding, altho ugh once purely a coastal phenomenon, has been blowing up in the media, and working its way further inland as both a super-fun activity, as well as a great way to get a bit of exercise.
Rentals take place on the scenic and historic Kentucky River. Once a hub of trade and commerce that was vital to the growth of Central Kentucky, the Kentucky River now offers great paddling water through one of the most storied parts of the state of Kentucky.
Rentals are done in 2-hour blocks, and meet at our Downtown Frankfort location.
