I honestly didn’t know much about Marietta, Ohio prior to my visit, but I discovered that the area has a lot to offer visitors. Marietta is positioned along the Ohio River which provides lots of opportunity for outdoor adventure.
I’ll be honest and admit that I really didn’t know what to expect for my first visit to Erie, PA. I knew that Erie was by the water, but I had no idea how much beauty the area had to offer.
I am happy to say that I finally crossed a kayak adventure to see the “Ghost Ship” off my list. I’ve been wanting to see it for a while and even put it on my Summer Bucket list. Summer flew by and I think I technically squeezed it in… but just barely.
I first discovered DryCASE from a few instagram accounts that I follow who used the product on their adventures. That made me do a little research to find out how this product could be used for a few of my adventures.
One of the adventures that I took forward to each summer is a day on the river. I’ve been going to Morgan’s Canoe and outdoor adventures in Brookville, Indiana since high school.
There are a lot of misconceptions out there about Cleveland’s water. You might remember hearing about the Cuyahoga river that feeds into Lake Erie burning most recently in the late 60’s.
We recently had an overnight camping/ rafting adventure at Morgan’s Canoe in Brookville, Indiana.
Morgan’s Canoe offers kayak, raft, and canoe rentals.
Morgan’s Canoe also offers overnight camping. You can primitive camp or you can upgrade to a cabin.
The cabins have bunk beds and a double bed. They also have air conditioning, a mini refrigerator, fire pit and my favorite…a porch swing.
You need to bring your own bedding, towels and toiletries. You can bring your own firewood or there is some available for purchase.
I’ll take a cabin over a tent any day!
If you don’t feel like bringing a lot of food with you, there is an IGA grocery store located very close to Morgan’s. There is also an amazing Mexican Restaurant, El Reparo, down the road.
When you stay overnight, you have access to restrooms and a shower house that are a short walking distance away. We enjoyed the horse shoe pit before making a bonfire that night.
The river is steps away from the lodge where you turn in the keys to your vehicle as a safety precaution and sign your waivers.
We had lots of options for our adventure on the water.
We opted for the raft.
My dad was joining us for this adventure and this was a lot more comfortable for the four of us.
If you like speed, the raft is not for you.
The raft is the slowest option but it might also be the most comfortable.
The scenery along the river is beautiful and the water was very clean.
There were a few times when we had mini little rapids which made it more exciting.
Our raft trip lasted about 3 hours which was a good amount of time. We still had a few times when the kids jumped out to play in the water along the way too.
We really enjoyed our outdoor adventure.
It was nice to slow down and appreciate nature for the day.

If you’ve got $5 and about 5 minutes, you can have a unique outdoor adventure white water rafting in downtown South Bend, Indiana
