French Broad

Welcome to Lazy Otter Outfitters

Welcome to the French Broad River - nature's favorite stretch of one of the world's oldest rivers. Far from the rush and the roads, yet close to Hendersonville, Asheville and Brevard. See the French Broad the Lazy Otter way!

Thank you to everyone who came out to paddle with Lazy Otter Outfitters in 2020! When we look back on this season we'll all remember the fun and smiles and laughs more than the masks and hand sanitizer, and we'll look forward to an even better 2021. Speaking of, we're making plans for more fun on the Undiscovered French Broad next season and we'll need some help to make it all happen. If you or someone you know might be interested in working with us in the 2021 season, please send an email to info@lazyotteroutfitters.com and let us know! And click here to subscribe to the Otter Tales newsletter for regular updates, news of the French Broad and specials!
