The Boathouse is Catawba Riverkeeper’s outdoor gear and apparel store located at the parking lot of the South Fork River Trail and R.Y. McAden Canoe and Kayak Launch in McAdenville, NC.

As you come off the water or the trail, you’re invited to stop in for a restroom break, shop for outdoor apparel and gear, and enjoy a local craft beer or seltzer.

The Boathouse is also the meeting site for Catawba Riverkeeper’s Half Day Guided Tour kayak program and the Paddle, Bike, Run Series powered by Ortho Carolina.

Proceeds from the used gear shop and draft beer sales support Catawba Riverkeeper’s mission to protect local water quality.
