The lesson was fantastic...I now love kayaking & have my own equipment!
“Took a basic kayaking lesson through Rocktown Adventures at Rock Cut State Park in 2021. I was afraid I would fail because I have no upper body strength and had zero clue about how to kayak. The lesson was fantastic. They walked through everything on shore before we even got in the kayaks. Once we got on the water, they patiently encouraged and guided each of us until we could paddle and maneuver confidently. I now love kayaking and have my own equipment. We still go with Rocktown Adventures on a few outings each year to explore new rivers because of their expertise and their commitment to safety.”
A Wide-Range of Equipment!
“It’s great to have a shop in town that carries such a wide-range of outdoor equipment! I appreciate the skilled staff, who can answer questions and make suggestions. Hoping that Rocktown Adventures will continue to rock for many more years!“
Wonderful Customer Service!
“Recently bought a kayak and accessories here and they were able to match us up with the right kayak for our needs! Took over an hour with us going over different options, pros and cons, making sure we truly were happy with what we got. It’s a perfect fit!”
Great place with great staff!
“A big variety of products for a small shop, but amazing product lines too. Kevin is a good guy and very friendly. Good ‘A-quality’ stuff that he uses himself. Love the fact that he can speak for his products, along with their capabilities!”
EXACTLY what this new mama needed!
“We recently did the Women on the Water guided tour and it was EXACTLY what this new mama needed! It was the perfect combination of exciting and relaxing. Our guide, Travis, was as friendly and helpful as he was knowledgeable. I was nervous to go out on the Rock River since I was so custom to kayaking on calm lakes, but I am so glad that we did! The water/current was much calmer than I expected. It was just enough to give us a little help paddling downstream. The Rocktown crew not only loads everything up for you (even if you bring your own equipment), but they also transfer you and unload you when finished. The prices are very fair and affordable. The staff was truly great! I would highly recommend this unique and special way to see our beautiful city!”
I would absolutely recommend!
“We went on the Friday night kayaking tour down the Rock river and had a great time! Our guide was a perfect mix of friendly, helpful, and entertaining. We picked up some kayaking tips and learned some Rockford history. I would absolutely recommend this and look forward to more adventures!”
Super friendly & knowledgeable staff!
“Great selection of boats, paddling gear and clothing as well as lifestyle brands including Prana, Mountain Khakis etc. Super friendly, knowledgeable staff. I did a guided trip today with them , great experience, look forward to doing more!”
This is why I support small business!
“Travis spent several hours explaining and then installing a kayak rack on my Subaru. His knowledge and service was exemplary. Other staff who stopped in were amazingly personable and wanted to make sure everything was as you wanted. There are also ongoing activities sponsored by the business and I hope to take advantage of them. I know they will make me feel welcome and part of ‘the family.'”
I definitely recommend to all!
“Rented a kayak and paddleboard. They gave us a quick lesson, dropped the gear off right next to the river. Very friendly, very reasonable price as well.”
We are hooked now!
“We took a fun introduction to snowshoeing! The guide was informative and helpful!”
“Rocktown Adventures always has great customer service! Many MANY great products!”
EXCELLENT service & advice from all of their staff!
“Over Summer, I bought a kayak and roof rack from Rocktown Adventures. I received EXCELLENT service and advice from all of their staff! I particularly enjoyed being able to paddle several different kayaks before choosing one. I also enjoy Rocktown Adventures’ paddlesports lessons and events. Their Kayak Safety & Rescue class is excellent, as well as their 2 River Paddles – lots of fun!”
