The Canoe Shack houses canoes and kayaks along the Little River, about a ten minute walk from the center of campus. Any student with a valid SLU ID can use boats during open hours during the fall and spring. Lifejackets and paddles are also provided at no charge.
The Canoe Shack is open from 3:00 to 6:00 during the week, and from 12:00 to 6:00 on weekends. Typically, the Canoe Shack is open for business soon after classes start in the Fall, and closes when the weather turns consistently cold. In the spring, the ‘shack will open the first week of April weather-pending, and close at the commencement of Finals week.
