Fall is the perfect time to enjoy Kentucky's waterways! As the temperature cools and the colors start to pop, experience a peaceful paddle on the beautiful Kentucky River, cast a line in Elkhorn Creek, or stop by the Canoe Kentucky shop to gear up for cool weather adventures on the water.
CKY Hours of Operation
KY River Downtown Paddle trips are currently available! Reservations are required- give us a call or book online. Online reservations are open through October 2. More dates will open soon, as we continue to monitor conditions.
Due to low water, Elkhorn Creek rentals remain closed. All reservations through October 2 have been contacted. Please give us a call to discuss options with customer service.
Please note: the CKY shuttle for new boat purchasers is unavailable when creek rentals are closed. All public access points are open, but the water is low.
Paddle for a Purpose as we paddle the length of the Lower Kentucky River! Each Sunday through October 30, we will paddle a different section of the river, from Frankfort to Carrollton. Each section of the river will include a 4-6 mile paddle on the Kentucky River and riverside discussions with local experts about topics ranging from history to aquatic life. All proceeds from this event go directly to our friends at Woods and Waters Land Trust. More info at www.canoeky.com/paddle-for-a-purpose.
Join us for a guided paddle through the Kentucky River Palisades at Shaker Village, October 8. Find more information here.
