ABOUT SEVEN OAKS RECREATION

Seven Oaks Recreation is family-owned and operated and offers year-round outdoor recreation in central Iowa. Our seasonal activities include canoeing, kayaking, river tubing, paintball, tent camping, skiing, snowboarding and snow tubing. We also provide a VERY nice facility that can be rented for wedding receptions, family reunions, class reunions, summer/winter retreats, birthday parties, corporate meetings/retreats, team building and other activities.

Our summer activities include full service canoe, kayak and river tube floats on the Des Moines river 5 days a week. We are excited to be celebrating 14 years of full service river floats! We offer 72 canoes, 24 kayaks and 240 river tubes and plenty of cooler tubes for your paddling or floating adventures. Even if you don’t know how to canoe or kayak, you will enjoy our canoe/kayak/river tube floats. Our river trips are fun for beginners as well as experienced canoe/kayak paddlers. You can paddle your way down the river, or simply relax, float, and enjoy miles of wooded bluffs. We can arrange a river float for you, your family or group.

After a fun day of canoeing, kayaking or river tubing, you might consider camping in our tent campground; complete with picnic tables, fire rings, and clean porta-potties. Modern restrooms with showers are located at the base of the ski hill. For more outdoor entertainment, we also offer paintball.

Seven Oaks Recreation’s winter activities include skiing, snowboarding and snow tubing. We offer 600 ski rentals and 120 snowboard rentals to outfit all ages. Our slopes consist of 11 runs varying from beginner to expert and offer a terrain park, rail yard and beginner area. We have 2 triple chairlifts, 2 surface lifts and an affordable snow tubing park. “The Lodge at Seven Oaks” provides ample seating with a great view of the slopes, fast food and Coal Creek Lounge. Skiing, snowboarding and snow tubing at Seven Oaks in Boone Iowa makes for great family or group activities for all ages – group rates and FREE ski and snowboard lessons available. Seven Oaks also offers several nightly discount programs. See YOU on the slopes!

UPDATES & INFO

River update: With the lack of rain, the river is running low and slow. We are running our normal trip #1 for canoes and kayaks and have shortened our tube trip. Our launch site for tubes is now at Wagon Wheel access. There’s a short 10-15 foot steep dirt bank that you’ll need to walk down to start your trip. It’s always a good idea to wear sandals or old shoes for your float.

Sandbars are out and the water level is down so it’s a perfect time for families with kids to float the river.  Reserve your spot for a canoe/kayak or river tube adventure!
