|A Brief History
Peyton's Place opened for business in May, 1968, as a restaurant and rental cabins on the west bank of the Illinois River just
outside Tahlequah, Oklahoma. Starting with just a few jon boats to rent to fishermen seeking the small-mouth bass and other
game fish of the Illinois River. Peyton's Place acquired canoes in the early 1970's and began service as a canoe livery for
fishermen as well as recreational paddlers wanting to enjoy the scenic beauty of a true gem in the foothills of the Ozarks.
Peyton's Place was the first canoe livery operating on the Illinois River, and has continued the family-owned and operated
business since that start more than 45 years ago. In about 1990, Peyton's Place acquired rafts for the benefit of those wanting
a leisurely float trip down the river, and quickly expanded the line to include kayaks for individuals or groups wanting a faster
paced trip down the river.
