River Canoeing in Troy, OH

Ah, the great outdoors! Nothing is quite as refreshing as spending time in the water, and what better way to enjoy the beauty of nature in Troy, OH, then by canoeing? Come to Miami County to enjoy clear water, numerous attractions, and as much time on the water as you could want!

What Is River Canoeing?

A canoe is a small boat, typically meant to hold a small handful of people and often enjoyed solo. The boat is as simple as they come; far from modern speedboats with excessive storage space and mechanical components, a canoe has little more than a pair of oars, a few seats, and some legroom.

Far from a disadvantage, this is actually one of the main appeals of canoeing! With no distractions – including the phone you likely left in your car – you’re able to focus fully on the beauty of nature, the warm sun, and the connection between you and the water as you handle the oars. Disconnect from modern society as you get some exercise and work off some stress.

After a day of river canoeing, you may be sore, sunburned, and damp, and you’ll definitely be invigorated. If you want to break the drudgery of daily life, a day of canoeing is a fun, healthy, and affordable way to make it happen!

If you want to expand your canoeing adventure with a cookout or a little sport, you can spend time at one of the many parks and campsites available. No matter what kind of day you want to enjoy, Miami County is a great place to spend it!
