What can you expect on the river?

Bent River Outfitter offers multiple river excursion options for all levels of paddlers. Our most popular route on the Blue Earth River begins at the Dam in Rapidan, Minnesota and ends at the Fort Lehilier Landing (90 bridge). This trip lasts about three to four hours, depending on how much you paddle. This route takes you through 11 sets of class #1 rapids. Consisting of small to medium waves and some rock obstructions, these rapids are manageable even for novice paddlers. Along with fun, small rapids there are two main waterfall spots to enjoy; Devils Gulch and Triple Falls. Both sets of falls are right along the river and are great spots to take a break in the shade and eat a snack. The Bent River Outfitter staff is happy to help paddlers find these spots on the river and are here to answer any questions along the way.

Join us for our spectacular full moon floats.

For more experienced paddlers, our moonlit paddle happens during every full moon throughout the summer. This trip begins around sunset and lasts until late into the night. It is an incredible paddle guided by the light of the moon. We stop along the river for a short fire and snack. This trip will have fewer rapids and obstructions to make the journey easier in the dark. The river chosen for this trip changes throughout the season, ask a member of the Bent River staff for information on the next one!
