Cowskin Canoe rental and Campground


Are you open to the public now?
if you guys retrieve my boat on the westside of the bridge around the bend please contact me. It is a flatbottom greenish colored with a Force 4hp motor on the back. we sank it and got it flipped back over and it was stuck on a log. We could not get to it. Thank you so much
The people that own it are great people I've gone to several several of their bike rallies and their canoe rental in camp area I mean it is just great

Been going to Cowskin my enitrie life, I love it. It is my favorite place to be.

With that being said this past Saturday my family (13 people, 3 cars) drove 3.5 hours to canoe and camp at Cowskin, my sister called a week or so ahead of time to reserve us a camping spot and enough canoes.. she even called then before we headed that way and let the woman on the phone know to just call us if any problems arose. We got there, paid for our camping sites and went to find one. Drove around twice and there was nothing open but a field with NO shade. They were allowing people who were only canoeing for the day to park in the shaded camping places. We were extremely disappointed and sad. We asked her where we are supposed to set up camp and she directed us to a spot that had a car parked there and she said " I dont know when he is coming back". This is our normal family vacation destination and we were all ready to unload and canoe. But we had to leave and find a different resort to camp at. Its safe to say that this trip went horribly even with our efforts to ensure we had a good time. Very sad with how down hill the place has gone and how uncaring they seemed.
