Old Town designed the Camper family for your family. The model 16 is touted as OT’s best all-around canoe, one that will keep parents and kids at ease. Made for ponds, lakes, and rivers, stability is a hallmark of this canoe. Available in red or green Royalex®, the 16 sports black vinyl gunwales, nylon web seats, polyethylene decks with grab handles, and an ash thwart and yoke.
Praised as an all-purpose canoe, the Camper 16 is an excellent boat for backwater travel, affording stability and maneuverability. Don’t take it on anything too choppy if you want to maintain those traits, although it does handle better in flowing water than when tracking straight on a lake. Stable enough to stand in for fishing or poling, it’s best loaded down to keep the wind from playing with it. This is a popular canoe with a long lifespan.
