Welcome to The Ohio River Rat Society. If you decide to join this meetup, you're not only joining a group, but yet a family of kayakers/rats all with one focus in mind; and that's having fun.

This is a group for anyone interested in kayaking central Ohio and surrounding areas. The trips will provide opportunities for paddlers of all skills levels to get their "paddle on"; from passive river and lake trips to adventurous whitewater excursions. Please do not let the name deter you as we offer trips for all ages and skill levels as stated. With the exception of a few higher classed rivers, all the rivers we paddle can be enjoyed by even beginner paddlers. If you have a special need just let us know and we'll see what we can do to accommodate your request.

In addition, we enjoy group gatherings at our homes, around campfires, a local pub or even a popular movie. In other words, we enjoy multiple activities as a "family of rats"

We look forward to seeing you on the river.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
