“Rob Roy,” is a special site for canoeing and kayaking on the southern Jordan River, which is filled with water all year round. The entire place is made of natural materials: wood and clay, and, incorporates Native American motifs.
It was established many years ago, in 1849. John McGregor, a Brit of Scottish origin, rode in a canoe for research and adventure, and John called his canoe “Rob Roy.”
