Shenandoah River Gear Rentals

Take It Yourself

Front Royal Outdoors offers You Take-It rentals for guests that want to take their choice of watercraft to another river, lake or stream. We even allow guests to take advantage of this program and use the boats on the Shenandoah River to save a couple of dollars. Paddlers that need an extra boat or two for friends will rent you take-it, secure it to their vehicle and off they go. Best of all is that we only rent top quality equipment from Old Town, Wenonah, Jackson Kayak, Bonafide; and Ocean Kayak. Included with each rental are our well maintained and clean paddles and life vests. To sweeten the deal, we allow our guests to pick the boat up during the last hour of operation the day before your planned paddle and only be charged for one day the boat is used. Note: when coming to pick up your rental you will be required to have a signed waiver for each participant (no exceptions). We suggest taking advantage of our e-waiver.  Let Front Royal Outdoors provide your all your gear needs for your next trip outside of our shuttle area.
