About Bellbrook Canoe Rental


Bellbrook Canoe Rental established itself in 1978 as one of the first canoe rentals to start operations on the Little Miami River in the Dayton, OH region. Bellbrook Canoe Rental has been owned by three different individuals. The latest owner, Ron Mullikin, bought the canoe rental in 2006. Under his ownership, business has doubled, and he continues to make changes and improvements to make Bellbrook Canoe Rental better for customers. For example, we have bought more canoes, kayaks, and tubes to accommodate new and existing customers. The Little Miami River, Ohio’s first registered scenic river is perfect for all ages and skill levels. We also have three shelters with grills perfect for parties, church groups, reunions, company retreats, schools, colleges, universities, etc. to grill and hang out after being out on the river. We have plenty of parking and restrooms at Bellbrook Canoe Rental. We invite you to explore our website and learn more about our services, and how we can help you enjoy a beautiful day on the river.
