Canoeing & Kayaking
With all this great weather people are to planning their trips down the Russian River. Check out our canoeing and kayaking section for the resources you need.

Tubes can be purchased at Country Tire in Guerneville. They charge $22.50 for a large tube, and $15 for a small tube - they don't offer rentals. Johnson's beach does rentals but they don't allow you to go off with them, you just have to float around there.

All the pictures on this website were taken from locations anyone could walk to (and many of them required no walking). There is an abundance of photo worthy scenes at every turn. It is not necessary to visit one of the parks to get pristine nature shots (the above picture was taken along a bridge just north of Monte Rio).
