Testimonials-Boy Scout Trip
Shawn Habecker, Asst. Scoutmaster
Our Boy Scout Troop was a Backpacking and hiking group up until a few years ago when we started to look into mixing it up. We wanted a canoe trip in the Adirondacks and I called Raquette River outfitters to get more information. With Anne’s help and patience we set up a trip for the ages. We have done the same trip several times now and it has become a highly requested trip from not only our scouts, but our adults as well. I highly recommend Raquette River Outfitters for all of your canoeing and kayaking adventures.

The Lake Region, is the place of our dreams
For my wife Barrie and myself, The Adirondacks, specifically the Western Adirondacks, the Lake Region, is the place of our dreams. Its wild, unspoiled yet accessible beauty calls us back year after year. From before we had our three children, and all through the years of raising them, our time on the lakes has energized and nourished all of us, sustaining us for the rest of our year, living in the big city which we love so well. Raquette River Outfitters is our base in the Adirondacks. Nobody knows the lakes as well as Rob Frenette and Anne Fleck, the delightful couple that own and operate RRO. They’ll tell you about every twist in the river, every widening in the lake, every carry, every campsite and every floating bog . They’ll help you plan the perfect route whether you want to really bust it, or prefer to find a base camp and relax, swim and take day trips. If there’s something you want to buy or rent, they have it. More than that, though, they extend real warmth and friendship and take all the time you need so that when you set out on your adventure, you’re comfortable and confident and when you return, you’re tired, happy and can’t wait for next summer. Barrie and I have been canoeing and camping in many places, but it’s been many years now since we decided that Anne, Rob and Raquetter River Outfitters are who we “want to grow old with.” Jerry and Barrie Raik.
