Youghiogheny Canoe Outfitters Kayaking Pittsburgh

We really enjoyed our trip, I couldn't ask for anything better. This was the first time I have ever done a kayak trip like this before. We did the short 4 mile run but after doing that, we can't wait to do a longer trip.

Everything went really smooth. Even though they were really busy, we showed up, got in to a parking spot, checked in/payed and were trying on some life vests. Once everyone was ready, they loaded us up in the van and we headed to the park.

Everyone we dealt with was super friendly and really knew there stuff.

The river is amazing for kayaking. It is shallow enough that you can stand in the water. Because of this, I guess boats can't go on the river, we only saw one tiny fishing boat with an engine, so no big deal. The river runs fast enough that you can enjoy a very relaxing trip down it without even paddling. We paddled slowly so we definitely want to do the longer trip next.

Overall, I couldn't have asked for anything better!

We did a family kayaking trip last weekend - a party of 9 including a five-year-old. Everyone had a wonderful time! We will be back in the spring! Thank you!

We brought 9 Boy Scouts and 3 adults for the 26 mile (2-day) float, plus 8 Boy Scouts and 2 adults for the second day (11 mile) float. We camped out on Friday and the first group left on Saturday morning to start our trip. After camping out Saturday night on the island, we met up with our second group at the 11-mile launch point. Everyone at YCO was courteous and made sure our camping and our float trips were everything we'd hoped they'd be. The whole family staff made it their personal responsibility to ensure that we were satisfied at every stage. We could not be more impressed with the equipment and the service. We're already talking about revising our 2016 calendar to come back. Well done!

We went up in June and had a blast here. We camped and did the canoe and alot of fishing. We lived off the fish we caught for 2 nights. The third we bought pizza. This was the best thing we ever did. We are coming back the end of July and August. We are now the die hards.
