On the Niangua River in Lebanon, Missouri  417-532-3724

Rental kayaks will be available this season. Our rental kayaks are upper end kayaks in the 12' range, dry hatch storage and suitable to carry enough gear to spend multi-day trips on the river. These kayaks offer great track and glide and are the next step in real kayaking and experiencing ownership. Call for rates and availability.

We are located at the entrance to Menagerie Campground.

Welcome to Kayak Base Camp. Base Camp.... Where Your Stuff Is.

Kayak Base Camp offers Premium Kayaks and Paddle Gear for those who have always wanted to try a kayak... and for those who know the difference. But most of all we offer experience.

The owners, Kathy and Charlie Burgess, are paddlers. We paddle Touring Kayaks and live from our boats from 6-10 days at a time on the river. We know what works and what’s "baggage." We also paddle White Water Boats when we find the water.
