We will be watching for you.
We were so impressed by Yough Canoe Outfitters and the town of West Newton. We found you on the Internet and decided to give it a try. It was the best trip in years. There was even great live outdoor music on the sunset deck at the bar/restaurant that we walked to from the YCO campground where we stayed. The river and the bike trail are awesome !!!
We originally were engaged on the Yough, and last year we rented the pavilion for a reunion/canoe outing and it was our best time ever. We finished the day with a hilarious sack race around the campground. The service was great by everyone there.
We did a group kayak trip last summer and now we are thinking about the heat on the river when it is -4 degrees outside right now !! We can‘t wait to get back on the Yough when classes are out and have some fun. West Newton is a cool town with a bike trail going through it
All I can say is the smallmouth fishing was super. We caught over 30 fish in one day using live bait we bought at their shop. The staff was the best at helping us out on just about everything. We will be back here alot !
I visited Yough Canoe Outfitters this past summer. My boyfriend and I had a great trip. The staff was really nice and helpful. I left my camera at the office and one of the guys actually brought it back to the drop off. We camped overnight at the campground and it was incredible. We will definitely be back to do the long overnight camping trip.
We did the kayak trip twice. Had a great time . Very relaxing time with the best of friends. The staff was very helpful and fun loving. Will definitely do the trip again. I converted my husband into a "river rat" now !!!
I was biking along the GAP trail this past weekend and saw a sign for Yough Canoe Outfitters Campground on the trail so I decided to stop in. The staff was super friendly and helpful, and what a beautiful campground on the river. I ended up camping at their campground to get some rest for the remainder of my long journey on the GAP trail. I plan on coming back to rent the pavilion and do a canoe float with my family and a large group of friends.
This was our third year kayaking with Yough Canoe Outfitters. Every trip has been great. This is a really good time for our granddaughter; she loves the river as much as my wife and I do. Yough Canoe Outfitters is a real class operation. I have kayaked or rafted on the Yough at Ohiopyle, the Ottawa River in Ontario, the Kicking Horse River in BC and the Hocking River in Ohio. Yough Canoe Outfitters is the best outfitter by far and away. We will be back again and maybe even camp with out grandsons. They are coming of age to be introduced to kayaking.
My very outdoorsy 9yr old son and I ended up here after I was researching fun things for us to do to bond. We did the tandem kayak and both had a great time! The river and scenery was beautiful and relaxing and he enjoyed spying the animals on the shore and was excited that he could row even though he never had before. The owner was very knowledgable and nice, and the shuttle to the launch was convenient. We definitely hope to make it back for another trip and possibly stay for camping as well!
I have rode past this place many times on my bike. Decided to give it a try. Wow! What a blast. From the initial phone call to the good bye hand shake, the owner and staff was fantastic. If you have never floated down this beautiful river, shame on you.
