Thanks for a Great Season

Thanks for getting outdoors with us and making the best of 2020. See you in 2021!

Kayaking Within Reach

River Guide Kayaks offers kayak rentals on the Kinnickinnic River in River Falls, WI and the Nippersink Creek in Richmond, IL. We’re just a short drive from Minneapolis/St. Paul and the Chicago, Milwaukee, Kenosha, and Racine areas, respectively—offering you a quick escape to easily access the river.

Your River Guide

We’ll set you up with your kayak, paddle, dry storage, PFD (life jacket), some basic instructions, and shuttle service. From there, the river is yours to explore and enjoy. See you at the take-out point! If you prefer expert guidance along the way, reserve a guide for an additional $20/hr.

Our greatest success is measured on the smiles on the faces of our customers. Check us out on Yelp and Facebook for a true taste of the River Guide Kayak experience.

To reduce stress, just add water.

This is by far one of the funnest river routes within a short driving distance of Minneapolis. The lower canyon tour has the perfect mix of adventure and relaxation and River Guide sets you up with everything you need for a fun afternoon.
