Welcome to Dick’s Place Canoe Rentals on the scenic Brazos River
For families looking for something unique and memorable, or just friends looking for a fun outing, Dick’s Canoe is the spot. Enjoy getting back to nature, the clear water, and beautiful landscapes along the way. Dick’s offers a spectacular trip on the Brazos River. Dick’s Place has been serving Texas canoers for more than 30 years.
We offer rental of both canoes and kayaks for a fun-filled trip from Lake Whitney dam to his location just over eight miles downriver. For a workout or excursion, Dick’s Canoe is the way to go.
Reservations are required for the experience. Pick up the canoe at Dick’s and a shuttle will drop off paddlers at a location just below the Lake Whitney dam. Then spend the day paddling, exploring, swimming, fishing, and relaxing as you make your way downstream.
This trip will take anywhere from five to six hours depending on water conditions, your paddling muscle condition, and how much fun you have along the way. The site is 8.5 miles from the Lake Whitney Dam, north of Waco by 30 miles. For longer trips, contact Richard.
Dick recommends a good lunch, drinks, and plenty of water, quality sunscreen, and fishing gear. The largemouth bass is always biting, in addition to gar, smallmouth bass, catfish, spotted bass, and more varieties. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has worked with the owners for decades, stocking fish. Bring along a waterproof camera, as there are plenty of opportunities for fun action shots, river wildlife, and beautiful scenery. Boats are rented out by the calendar day, with canoes at $50 flat, single kayaks offered at $35 to $50 flat, and double kayaks for that special couple at $50. The price includes the shuttle ride and life jackets. The trip and experience, particularly with loved ones, are well worth it.
