Ghost River Outfitters was founded in the spring of 2004 by long-time friends, Mark Babb and Don Hailey.  For years Mark and Don worked together for a local Fire Department, taking advantage of every day off by exploring the Ghost River section the Wolf River.

Now we enjoy helping others discover the same river.

The business has grown and now we have some awesome partners: Trips on the Wolf River, Wolf River Conservancy, and Bluff City Canoe Club. We work together to get folks out on the Ghost River to see for themselves the majesty of a river that lies at the heart of our community.

Some of our partners



Ghost River Rentals has been in operation since 2004. We began this venture by accompanying friends and family on guided river tours and supplying them with our extra canoes and kayaks. These trips have been on most sections of the Wolf River, the Hatchie River and the Mississippi River. Since then, we have had people from all over the world and walks of life use our services to get out on the Ghost River.
