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.

  • Participants must be at least 3 years old to ride in a canoe and 8 years old to use a kayak.
  • Please dress appropriately. You will most likely get wet when on the river. Shoes with a heel strap and life jackets must be worn at all times.
  • Crooked River Adventures may cancel any trip in the case of severe weather or abnormal river conditions.
  • Pets are not permitted on individual or small group trips. Call (330) 541-7467 for more information regarding our pet policy.


During the week, trips are only offered on a reservation basis for groups of five or more. Interested participants can call 330-541-7467 to place a reservation.

On the weekends, Crooked River Adventures will be open to patrons on a drop-in basis until 4 p.m. However, reservations are still strongly recommended as trips often fill up quickly.
