GRIZZ LEE BEAR
Grizz Lee Bear joined the RTRO team in 2016. He is an expert SUP boarder and takes his security duties seriously by performing regular perimeter checks while at the marina. Most days, you can find Grizz riding on the front of Samuel's boat, rounding up stray kayaks, or lounging on the dock. He is an energetic Leo with a heart of gold, a love for smelly socks, and will gladly accept generous tips in the form of Milk-Bones.
We are excited to offer multiple river experiences in
Our original location offers unique access, a full service marina, restrooms and private boat house on the Arkansas River for our events and Downtown River Tours right in the heart of the capitol city.
Two Rivers Boat House
In 2019 The Arkansas Boat House was built to provide recreational boating on the Little Maumelle River. The boat house is shared by Rock Town River Outfitters and the Rock City Row Team. It has become a great location not only for kayaks and SUP boards but for watching, learning and competitive rowing.
