10 Reviews of Garrison Canoe Rental and Campground
Primitive and Full Hook Up

I've seen some reviews say its outdated and I'm not sure where that comes from. On season they offer a variety of float and eat packages that are tasty and nicely priced. Cute little campground with "primitive", electric and full hook ups. All tent camping is still pretty close to the general store that also has coin showers! You have good options for a shady and grassy spot if you're tent camping too. Great folks working there, always very friendly and helpful.

Good spot for an all day float trip.

This location has been a constant location visited over the last ten years for an annual float trip with my friends. Enough ground to spread our tents out and still being close to the campfire while not being bothered by other campers.

Great Experience

A group of friends and I go to Garrison’s every year for a great float and two nights of camping. We have been able to reserve a private area for a pretty large group, and we have the area to ourselves!


We stayed here as a group of 5 RV campers. Our campers backed up to a fence about 5 feet off the highway. Cars and trucks fly down this highway at very fast speeds all hours of the day and night. Worried for everyone’s safety if there was a crash. Second worry was getting hit by a car trying to cross the highway to get to the river. Once we finally all got across it was quite a walk to the water (meramac River) and the water smelled terrible! We never got in the water there it smelled so bad..we all packed up and went to RedBluff for the day to play in the water. Only thing that made this place fun was the DJ/karaoke at night

Mini cabin

Very nice place, quiet

Great float

Showed up late for a float trip. They were very accommodating for our group. We rented the new tubes they carry. They were very comfortable with back support and pillow when you’re leaning back. 20 bucks for a 4 hour float, ya can’t beat it! Definitely be back

Run down Rustic river resort with great staff and beautiful setting.

Run down buildings but amazing views. No water from community facets but big camp sites. Great staff all friendly and helpful . What they lack in amenities they makeup with down home country charm. Lots of family activities on friday and saturday pool closed on sunday. Very quiet thru the week.!!!

Great Place

Full hookups(electric/water/sewer) for rvs, as well as primitive tent sites. Facilities are bit on the older side, but 2 shower houses are available. River access within walking distance. Canoe and raft rental available.

Dancing on the river

Fun place to float the river. Have camping and RV rentals. Very accommodating staff. They provided a cookout on Fridays and Saturdays. Plus a dance hall after floating.

First to Review
This was a clean well organized camp ground.

This campground had a good deal of trees for shade while still offering plenty of open spaces for kids to run around. Some areas had close access to the river. The staff was very friendly and the prices were reasonable.
