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 52 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.
In 1996, Peyton's Place opened a bunkhouse lodge to cater to large groups seeking indoor accommodations in a common
setting. The lodge can sleep up to 48 people.  Two dormitory-style rooms include a large dressing area and private restrooms
and showers.  A meeting area, common dining area, kitchen, and a wood-burning fireplace are centrally located for those cozy
fall and winter nights on the river.  

Come to Peyton's Place and find out why the first canoe rental livery on the Illinois River is the last place you will ever need to
look for a complete getaway in a serene and beautiful setting repleat with Eagles, Osprey, Hawks and Great Blue Herons
gracing the skies.  Peyton's Place will convince you that it is THE place for your outings on the beautiful and scenic Illinois
