Canoe Outpost - Peace River

Canoe Outpost-Peace River, founded in 1969, is Florida’s oldest and one of its largest paddlesport outfitters. Canoe Outpost-Peace River offers visitors the opportunity for wildlife viewing, swimming, fossil hunting, birding, fishing, picnicking, hiking, wilderness camping, glamping, canoeing, paddleboarding, and kayaking on the beautiful Peace River. The Peace River is a designated State Paddling Trail and one that offers vast wilderness and non-wilderness camping on the riverbanks. We operate all year ‘round and our focus are the family and youth groups. We try to instill in our guests a respect for the natural and historic Florida while enjoying the great outdoors. For many, it's a chance to just sit back and relax from the hectic coastal life just a short drive away.

Canoe Outpost-Peace River offers a diverse selection of specialty services other than the standard canoe and kayak rental. We offer hot dog cookouts for kid groups, camping gear delivery, camping gear rental, campsite concierge services, catering, all-inclusive camping trips, exclusive Outpost owned camping and picnic sites along the river, kids, 12 & under, are free in the middle, and we're dog friendly. The Outpost operates on one of the few pet friendly rivers in Florida. Paddle the Peace is your chance to relax, relive childhood memories of the Old Florida, and the chance to see the True Florida.
