Welcome to C.R.C.O




Churchill River Canoe OutfittersChurchill River Canoe OutfittersChurchill River Canoe Outfitters, (CRCO), is located in Missinipe, Saskatchewan, Canada on the Churchill River in the middle of the Precambrian Shield.


Our specialty is canoeing. We offer canoe trips, canoe clinics and courses, whitewater training, canoe guide training, equipment rentals, canoe route maps, and much more!


Hundreds of canoeists stop into CRCO's Missinipe office every summer to ask for information on the canoe trips they are planning. Ric Driediger, the owner of the company, has been guiding trips in these parts for nearly 40 years. He knows every nook and cranny you can put a canoe into. CRCO has canoe trip logs written on dozens of different Northern Saskatchewan canoe routes.

If you are setting out to explore the beautiful Churchill River area, feel free to drop by our office. We are always happy to talk "paddling", and to share the latest information on routes and conditions.


If you are in need of quality equipment for your trip, we can help. CRCO offers a wide range of rentals, including canoes, tents, paddles, lifejackets, packs, and almost anything else you might require. For those looking for a guided canoe adventure, CRCO has available experienced guides. Our guiding staff are certified canoe instructors with a vast knowledge of many popular routes.

We can put together the trip of your lifetime, complete with any gear you may need, and our famous gourmet foods, carefully prepared with nutrition, variety and taste in mind.


At our base in Missinipe, we have seven comfortable cabins available for daily, weekly, or even monthly rental. With names like the Lodge, Log Cabin, Fox Den, Aspen, Hideaway, Ravens Loft and Eagles Nest, you can be assured that each is unique, warm, cozy and ready to become your home away from home!
