“Best River Trip Ever!! Hidden Gem!!! Well worth the $$”

Big Buffalo Crossing Canoe & Kayak - Day Adventures
Reviewed 25 June 2014

A small pop run business, with top notch equipment and staff of one. Did the 3 hour four mile trip on a Sunday morning. Only one other canoe besides us on the entire trip. Eagles, Otters, Turtles, Bass, Birds of all kinds and Trees and most of all peace and quiet. Like being the first early explorer of the region. Gentle stream no rapids on Johnson Springs to Munfordville portion. Dozens of springs and rock formations to see and experience. Hardly had to paddle at all. The owner was very nice assisted with gear and made us feel at home. Will be returning to this place again. Truly words cannot express how we were treated. Like we were old friends or family. He even showed us a little known trail down river from his base camp to the Battle of the Bridge site about a mile downstream. Open a closed fence for us and gave great directions. He has discount $2.00 off coupons as well. The three hour trip was only $40 for canoe and two people. He provides all gear life vests, paddles and dry sacks for your gear. Showed us sites like sink holes and farms on way into the drop site. Carried the canoe down to the river and helped us gear up. In today's world it was great to find such old fashioned service. Told us things and places to watch for. This was the greatest canoe experience I have ever had in the eastern United States! Only drawback was signage getting to the base camp location, his sign was covered up by a reunion sign and the road sign had tree branches grown down over them, but when I told him about that he had removed the branches and sign by the time we had returned down river. Bring your camera and picnic stuff too. The city park is adjoining the base camp and has shelters, picnic tables and a walking trail and of course the giant bronze Buffalo statue. Old bridge supports go over his base camp and only add to the experience. You will be pleased with the entire operation. It is located just pass the square headed toward the Green River bridge on the right across the street from the Four Wheeler dealer and then quick down the side street that angles off and then onto River Rd. a <|> type intersection.
