"We devote time to each customer - from the planning of their trip to providing friendly professional service on the day of their visit to the beautiful Elk River." - Ben Towry

Little did I know, fifteen years ago when I started working at Elk River Canoe Rental, that I would someday be its proud owner. I remember the first day I started working for Linda and Bill. I was thrown right in with with all the other workers and I really did not know how the whole operation worked. When the day was over, I decided that I really enjoyed the beauty of the river. After that day, The Elk seemed to have a special effect on me. I worked every summer from then on. In November of 2004, I purchased the business from Linda and Bill. I hope that everyone who comes out to float enjoys the beauty of the river like I do. It has a special place in my heart and I am glad that other people get to experience it also. Being a native of Lincoln County, I never realized that so many people floated the Elk. I am so proud that Fayetteville and Lincoln County has such a beautiful and scenic river.

"It's like a natural high,"says Ben. "It's really a good feeling just watching people enjoy themselves and the great outdoors." A dream come true for this Lincoln County hometown native who now owns his own business which is located in a relaxed, outdoor environment, near the water, and in his beautiful hometown area of Tennessee.

Come float with us!

Elk River Canoe Rentals is a fun and enjoyable recreational business, that the whole family can enjoy! Offerings for canoe and kayak float trips down the scenic Elk River are available for seven full months out of the year.

Couples Canoeing, a great get-awayWe want to emphasize that we see a lot of parent-child trips because "out here they are more likely to talk, than if they were at home distracted by the television or telephone." We also believe a few relationships have been mended out here because of the opportunity it gives people to relax and get away from the hectic schedule of life. Out here - people have time, for each other!
