We want to host your next group outing! Whether it be a business outing, a team-building event, or a family get-together, we offer various options for groups ranging from a few people to over 40. Whether you decide to canoe the river to build team cohesion among your employees, go kayak fishing with a few clients, or try out stand up paddle boarding at Warner Lake Park for a family get-together, you are bound to have a great time! Read on for our most common group outing options.

River Trips:

Our river trips are on a stretch of the Mississippi River that is designated "Wild & Scenic" by the DNR. There are miles of natural shoreline with islands and some campsites to enjoy along the way. The occasional sand bars and sandy shorelines make for great swimming, and the shallow, rocky river bottom makes for spectacular fishing. Allow some time before and after your trip for equipment issue, paperwork, and shuttling.

  • A 5 Mile River Trip (1-1.5 hours; 2-5 hours if fishing) from Island View Park to CW Outfitting.
  • An 8 mile trip (2-3 hours; 4-6 hours if fishing) from Clearwater to Becker.
  • A 13 mile trip (4-5 hours; 6-8 hours if fishing) from St. Cloud to Clearwater.

Warner Lake:

This is a small, non-motorized lake that is scenic, calm, and full of wildlife. The park's thick, surrounding woods and foliage keep the water clean, clear and smooth throughout the year, providing a perfect location for stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, and canoeing for your group. Hiking trails surround the lake and along the southern shore of the lake is a large picnic area and sandy swimming beach to add to the groups enjoyment. The park is a short 2 mile drive from our parking lot and we can schedule as much time at the park as you like. Allow some time before and after the trip for equipment issue, paperwork, and shuttling.


Let us provide catering for your group as part of your day of team-building, networking, business or just plain fun! The delicious options include everything from picnic lunches to BBQ to hors d'oeuvres to main buffet style entrees. For more details on local catering options, please email us.


We can provide other entertainment besides paddling! From live music to lawn games such as bean bag toss and bocce ball, don't let the fun stay on the water! For more details on live music and game options, please email us.

Prices and Scheduling:

We offer reduced pricing for groups of 8 or more with a single group coordinator to take care of the reservation and payment. It is generally 15% - 40% off regular prices depending on the size of the group and options selected. Please have your group coordinator email us for pricing and to make a reservation. With any size group, it is important to make a reservation as soon as possible to ensure there is available equipment and room on our shuttles.

After reservation - Before arriving:

Once the group coordinator has scheduled the trip, they will receive an email with more info and a Group Roster form. As the group leader, forward this email to everyone in the group to get all the needed information on each person participating.  This will help expedite your processing upon arrival and get you on the water quicker.
