Welcome to our web site, and to the little corner of the world we live and paddle in. Whether you are a first time paddler or a full-out paddle sports enthusiast, we hope you will find that our services, facilities and waterways combined will give you a great nature and paddling experience.

The Canoe Outpost on the Little Manatee River is located on the Gulf coast of Florida in southern Hillsborough County. We are near the cities of Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Bradenton and Sarasota. So, whether you are visiting our area or live here, we are less than an hour’s drive away and our trips are a great way to spend a part or all of your day.

We offer canoe and kayak rentals for self-guided trips on the Little Manatee River, Cockroach Bay, and the Braden River.We also offer tubing on the Little Manatee River when conditions allow for it. We provide the transportation so you can go with the flow.  We can also coordinate group trips on other local rivers.

Looking for a place to get away? We offer 1 and 2 bedroom cabin rentals by the day, week, or month to relax and enjoy the river, hiking and horseback riding or to serve as a home base for your Florida vacation. We offer individual and group tent camping sites as well as RV sites and rentals.

The Canoe Outpost on the Little Manatee River is also part of the Canoe Outpost family with locations on the Peace River, Santa Fe River and the Suwannee River. We invite you to check out the Canoe Outpost web site at www.Canoeoutpost.com.
