The Kansas River is a wonderful water recreation resource, right here in our own backyard. The Kaw has more than 20 access points between Junction City and Kansas City, with three in the Topeka area alone. Kaw Valley Canoe Rental rents canoes and kayaks, complete with life jackets and paddles, with delivery and pickup available. Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned river rat, let Kaw Valley Canoe Rental make your time on the Kansas River unforgettable. For trip planning purposes, plan for approximately 3 river miles per hour. Plan your trip by checking the Friends of the Kaw website website river access list and map, and calculate roughly how much time you want to spend on the river, then select your entry and take out points. For example, an enjoyable day float is from Wamego (River Mile 128) to Belvue (River Mile 119) - approximately 9 river miles. Special discounts are available for scout and church groups.
