Our family floated the Mahoning last weekend. Fantastic fishing! Thanks Redbank Valley Outfitters for the Kayaks and advise on all the hotspots! Says Clifford J. Colbertson

RV Outfitters has a run from Route 28 to the Allegheny River. We floated it last year, it was a fantastic trip. I would strongly recommend! Says Jack Hayes

My youth group utilized Redbank Valley Outfitters this past summer. The trip was a eleven out of a
    ten. My kids are still talking about it. I would highly reccomend any trip that they are promoting. Make some more T-Shirts Tubby well be back in June! Says Roseita Henry

Our group used Redbank Valley Outfitters several
times this past summer.  We found them to be delightful to work with.  Jeff and Kathy are true professionals and went out of their way to make each trip exciting.  I would and will use them again! Says Bill Cundiff

Outfitter coming Redbank Valley Outfitters Inc. This company will be renting and shuttleing Kayaks by late summer early fall in this area and also the Redbank Creek..  Phone 814-229-3621 Says Jeffrey Wright

The put-in is not
too far from Indiana, as you can see on the road map further down. If you've been out of state whitewater rafting and kayaking you might find the rivers here more forgiving, so better not forget that lots of rivers in this state are good for beginners. The nature scenery of Armstrong County and the playfulness of the water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. This stretch has enough mileage for an overnight trip, so pack your camping stuff. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking around here you'll find a large number of good spots. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby.
