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. We couldn’t do it without our friends who work with us, so a special shout out to Donald, Hensil, and Jimmy. Then of course we can’t leave out our younger guys who do so much: Derrick, Trent, and Hayden. They are all awesome! 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! While you are here, make sure to check out our FAQ and Price list pages
