June 26 is National Canoe Day, a day dedicated to the joy of canoeing. With summer finally, here, I have seen a lot more people getting out on the water and canoeing in Augusta.

Canoeing can be a great way to get some peace and relaxation in nature. It’s also a form of outdoor exercise.

How to Celebrate National Canoe Day

  • Go Canoeing!

Augusta has many bodies of water appropriate for canoeing. There are also a ton of businesses that offer group trips in canoes or even renting out your own canoe for a period of time.

Below is a list of places to canoe in Augusta. Most of these have both canoeing and kayaking, while some just specialize in kayaking. While canoeing and kayaking are not the same, I decided to mention those spots too, even though it’s not National Kayak Day!

Check out these spots to canoe (or kayak) in Augusta.
