Hello and thank you for visiting our website! We are a small friend and family owned business who values a clean, family oriented environment. We offer canoe, kayak and tube rentals on the Shenandoah River. Our trips are all self-guided, include rental of equipment, life jackets and shuttle. We want you to have a memorable experience on the river, and come back to see us for years to come! We can plan a river adventure best suited to your group so that you have a safe and enjoyable time together, surrounded by the natural beauty of our area. Our departure times are flexible, the check in process is quick and simple. Our equipment is clean, and of high quality, and our customer service unbeatable! Get back to basics and enjoy the outdoors.


Mudkat Outfitters LLC is owned and operated by Mike and Crissy Jones, and Rodney and Jennifer Rines. This business came to be while camping along the Shenandoah River with our church youth group, sparked by a casual conversation between Mike and Rodney about people’s love for the river. Mike is the “driver” who got the ball rolling and kept the fire under the rest of us, Rodney is the resident “river expert” (ask him about his three day canoe trips in the fall/winter,) and Crissy and Jennifer are the brains behind the whole operation! We won’t tell the guys that though! This is a total family and friend run venture. Our mission is to offer first class customer service, and a fun, safe time on the river! We will throw in some good ole humor, and southern hospitality for free! Give us a call at (540) 843-0919 for more information and to make a reservation!
