Big Dogs on the River is a kayaking service in Athens, Georgia. From Big Dogs, visitors are taken on a 15-minute ride to kayaks berthed on the Middle Oconee River, from where they can kayak back to their car. The kayak trail on the Middle Oconee is 3.5 miles long and takes most riders approximately two to three hours to paddle.
Single or tandem kayaks may be rented, and lightweight aluminum paddles are provided. The Middle Oconee River is easy paddling, with a few shoals to break up the ride. Upon return to Big Dogs, kayakers will be assisted out of the river and may make use of the facilities, which include restrooms, picnic tables, grills, a volleyball court and horseshoe pitch, and satellite TV.
