General Information

Crooked River Adventures offers trips along the Cuyahoga River to three destinations, all with easy-to-navigate routes and beautiful views. Participants must complete a 30 minute safety briefing prior to any trip. Return transportation to Tannery Park will be provided.

  • All river trips begin at Tannery Park in Kent, OH, and return transportation is provided.
  • Boats, lifejackets, and paddles are provided for each person. Life jackets must be worn at all times while on the river.
  • Participants must complete a mandatory 30 minute safety briefing prior to all trips. This time has been built into our start times, so simply show up for the start of your booking time. You will not be allowed to paddle your scheduled trip if you miss this briefing.
  • Crooked River Adventures may cancel any trip in the case of severe weather or unsafe river conditions. Be sure to check Facebook the day of the trip for cancellations or other announcements. 
  • All guided trips begin at Tannery Park and end at Brust Park. Trips include two experienced guides with first aid training, equipment, and instruction.
  • Be sure to check out our Pedal/Paddle Packages- our healthiest option - we leave a bike for you at the takeout and you can ride back to Tannery Park.
  • On days when the Cuyahoga River is not runnable due to high or extremely low water, we offer trips to Mogadore for only $18.00 per person.
  • Have your own boat? We offer a shuttling service for $10 per person for all of our scheduled trips.
