Outfitters & Liveries
You don't need to own your own watercraft to take advantage of our flowing waters. You can rent canoes, kayaks, and stand-up paddleboards, from six liveries in NE Indiana on the Pigeon River, Fawn River, St. Joseph, St. Marys, and Maumee Rivers. There are also watercraft rentals at many of the State Parks (though those boats must stay in the park). Many of these liveries also sell essential paddling gear, are experts in the waterways they service, and are often a wealth of knowledge when it comes to paddling. Check out the list of outfitters and liveries in NE Indiana below!
