This is a great way to spend a weekend or just a Saturday or Sunday during the summer months. This place is located in Elkader and once you rent a canoe, they drive you to the banks of the Turkey River for trips down the river. The scenery is gorgeous and the canoe rentals arent at all expensive. There are lots of places to come ashore when youre canoeing and have a nice picnic lunch. Be prepared for a lot of paddling though.
