What we're about

Welcome to the group that paddles Ohio‘s, rivers and creeks. If you enjoy paddling moving water (and some lakes too), this is the group for you! Keep in mind that paddling in moving water involves more inherent risk than paddling still water. Because of this, some paddles may not be appropriate for new or beginner paddlers. You must read and accept our release of liability prior to joining or attending any event. Now, lets go paddling!
