The Lambert Family started the Old Mill Canoe Rental in 1971 by renting the very first canoe on Blue River. They began with just 5 canoes, and a few years later, it grew to 250 canoes. Over time, the Lambert Family decided to scale back and the fleet was reduced to about 50 canoes and 20 kayaks. The business was family owned and operated by the Lamberts and Knapps for 44 years until February of 2016 when Kevin Reitz and Angela Pedigo saw an opportunity to build upon what the Lambert's began so many years ago. The Reitz-Pedigo family plans to grow the business while keeping it tight-knit and personal throughout the journey, like it always has been.
"We always treat our customers like family, and we want your canoeing or kayaking experience to be a memorable one. Thank you for your interest in our business and we look forward to serving you very soon."

We were able to get some updated photos of one of the bald eagles and the nest over our scenic stretch of Blue River. This winter we spotted the pair perched on a branch together, but on this trip we could only find one. This makes us wonder if we've got eggs in the nest! Time will tell. Keep an eye out when you are taking your trip and maybe you'll spot them.
