Adventure Mendota River Outfitter

General Info.

Adventure Mendota is a family-owned business located on the North Fork of the Holston River in Mendota, VA offering kayak  rentals. Our kayak experience is great for couples, families and groups!  We also offer park-shuttle service for those with their own kayaks going on one of our routes.   Adventure Mendota currently has over 75 Jackson Riviera sit-on-top kayaks so we can easily accommodate a wide range of group sizes.    Jackson Riviera kayaks are known for their stability and ease of tracking which provides a better experience for new kayakers.  The North Fork is a mellow Class I or II river perfect for beginning kayaking.  Our recreational kayaks and recreational river make a perfect marriage.   Our kayak trips are not guided.       

Our facility includes clean, indoor restrooms and new outdoor changing rooms.  Adventure Mendota has a one-bedroom, fully-furnished guesthouse that sleeps four.   There are picnic tables available–first come first served. 

We are alcohol free so please leave alcoholic beverages behind when you visit.   Reservations are required, and same-day reservations are welcome.  Please visit our website at for full details.  

Come see us!  We’d love to have you!  Mike and Eva and the Adventure Mendota Staff
