FALL CANOEING:  It's such a pretty time of the year to get on the river.  Please note that our trip schedules vary during this time of the year and it's best to call us at 513-932-7658 to see what trips will be running that day. 


Morgan’s Canoe Livery at Ft. Ancient was the first livery on the Little Miami River, built by Bob and June Morgan in 1969.  It remains to this day the only Canoe, Kayak, and Rafting Outfitter located in the pristine Ft. Ancient Gorge of the Little Miami River. It was home to the ancient Hopewell Indian tribe also known as "The Mound Builders".

The Morgan Family chose this secluded section of river for its natural beauty and protected isolation, (there are no towns within six miles), as well as being the best canoeing section on the Little Miami.

Our beautiful Riverside Campground and Cabins are located just 3 miles downriver from Ft. Ancient. Make your weekend an overnight stay and camp along the river bordered by huge, ancient sycamore trees. We are the only camping and cabins on the Little Miami Scenic Bike Trail. Ask about our 2 day Camp/Canoe special and build lasting memories with your family or group. Plan to include a visit to the interesting museum at the Ft. Ancient State Memorial Park  and hike the trails to observe the prehistoric burial mounds located here. Take your family on a hike upriver on the newly renovated Silver Moccasin Trail through deeply wooded forest to The June Morgan Memorial River Sanctuary and plant some wildflower seeds along the way.
