Alcohol Policy

We reserve the right to inspect the contents of all coolers and refuse service based upon the presence of alcohol.  Alcohol and river activities –canoeing, kayaking, tubing, and swimming– DON’T MIX. Your judgment and abilities will be diminished by alcohol. Exposure to summer sun intensifies the effects of alcohol. The City of Loveland and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources are taking a strong stance against drinking in public and while on the water. Be responsible and smart; make the drive home safe and sober.

Our work group had such an amazing time in Loveland paddling down the river and then later going to lunch at Tano’s, the whole day was perfect. I can’t wait to come back next year.
