The D&R Canal was built in the 1830’s to transport goods and materials between New York and Pennsylvania. Today, the canal is used primarily for water supply and recreation. Griggstown Canoe and Kayak Rental is located halfway between the 34 mile Trenton to New Brunswick stretch. It’s the perfect location to enjoy the beauty of this once busy waterway. With only a slight current, it’s great for beginners and families. The more adventurous can try one of our Millstone River D&R Canal Loops.
Whether you paddle for an hour or all day, we have canoes and a variety of kayaks to fit everyone. We have picnic tables on site and the D&R Canal State Park, adjacent to the Canoe Rental, has picnic tables and hiking and bike riding trails. After paddling, why not explore the Griggstown Grasslands Preserve located across the street. It is a 685 acre area of both open fields and woodlands known for its nesting birds and butterflies.
