From the geocaching on the trails to the reading and learning that my ancestors were "Canawlers", my family and I had a great adventure here. I will put this on my return visit list for my RV adventures as well.

We took a ride on the canal boat and it was fun and informative. The boat was pulled by two horses to give you a real perspective of how it used to be. It was narrated throughout with information on the town and canal. The video shown beforehand also gave lots of good history.

We visited Canal Fulton in October when the beautiful fall foliage was out.. It was a beautiful day. Its a great place to hike on the towpath beside the canal and watch the magnificent mules, draw the boat like they did in the 19th century... it takes you back in another time zone.. Ofcourse we ended up doing the boat... More

The Canalway Center is the first stop for someone who wants to ride the St. Helena Canal boat. You purchase the tickets for the ride at the counter and then can watch a short video regarding the history of the Canal. There are lots of brochures about different activities in the area so if you're visiting be sure to check... More

The Canalway Center offers a great little one-hour canal boat tour packed with Ohio history, charm and music. The kids on our tour were engrossed by the horses, our guide's incredible gift for story-telling and the charm of the ride. Those who don't want to take the boat ride can walk or bike ride on the canal trail as well.... More

Our Ohio canal boat adventure happened on a somewhat drizzly Saturday in July and this may have accounted for the low number of passengers. We found the Canalway Center, as described by others, to be clean with helpful staff. We didn't have time to see the DVD in full, but what we did see was interesting. (Our ride began at... More

If you want to hike or bike the Towpath, you want to stop at this center and check it out. It isn't anything fancy but it has nice rest rooms, plenty of brochures of things to consider visiting in this region, and you can get details for the canal boat ride. The staff is helpful. There is plenty of parking.... More
