The Backpackers Shop - Ohio Canoe Adventures

5128 Colorado Avenue
Sheffield Lake, OH 44054


Many moons ago, The Backpackers Shop® (then widely known as Ohio Canoe Adventures, Inc.) was a "mom and pop" canoe shop off the beaten path. How times have changed! The canoeing boom of the sixties, seventies and eighties has lead to the enormous kayak boom of the nineties and beyond. We now stock hundreds of kayaks from Percpeption, Native, Liquid Logic, Old Town, Hurricane, and Current Designs. Whether you are interested in an entry level recreational kayak, fishing kayak, open cockpit kayak, or technical sea touring kayak, we have the right model for your sense of adventure.
