Juniata River Adventures Await!

Plan your Juniata float trip with us! Juniata River Adventures and Buttonwood Campground offer canoe and kayak rentals, tubing adventures, and livery service on the Juniata River… a slow-moving, peaceful body of water that wanders through the beautiful farmlands, dense woods, rolling ridges, and small towns of Juniata County. Most trips launch from our private launch on the river and will be picked up down stream. Other trips begin upstream and end at our launch in Mifflintown. For a true outdoor adventure, we also now offer primitive camping on the banks of the Juniata River, where you may still enjoy our many nearby amenities. Our equipment consists of canoes, single and tandem kayaks, and adjustable personal flotation devices.
