Thaxton's Canoe & Paddlers' Inn

2015 Paddling Season


Welcome to Thaxtonís South Fork Canoe Trails, Inc. and Paddlersí Inn. We are located on the northwest side of the US 27 bridge on the banks of the Licking River, only an hour north of Lexington and just a half-hour South of Cincinnati. The Licking River is recognized by the Kentucky Division of Water as an outstanding water resource. Here you will find over 100 species of fish and over fifty species of mussels. Mussels serve to filter bacteria from the water and are protected on this pristine waterway that flows North. Our cedar cabins nestled above the river offer a perfect romantic getaway or family holiday. During the season,. April through November, there is no charge for canoeing and kayaking to our cabin guests who paddle out from the Inn and return to the Inn. A great family fun canoe and kayak opportunity in Northern Kentucky. We are closed December through March but keep two cabins open to serve the local community.
