A wonderful place to spend some quality time with family and friends on the mighty Colorado River.

Our rental facility is the ideal location for family reunions, birthday parties, meetings, etc. We are located on the banks of the Colorado River, adjacent to the historic site where Robson's Castle once stood.


Though no longer renting canoes/kayaks, (Howell Canoe Livery 1996 - 2019), we will continue to provide shuttles for boat owners that would like to paddle the TPWD Columbus Paddling Trail. This paddling trail covers a scenic 6.1 mile section of the Colorado River that begins and ends in historic Columbus. You will begin at Howell's Riverfront and end at Beason's Park. This is a great day trip that includes islands, light rapids, and a creek that enters the river halfway through the trip.


If river tubing is more your style, contact Waldo's Camp to arrange for a float trip from Howell's Riverfront.
