Directions to the Shop
Our address= 15101 Seneca Rd, Germantown MD (PLEASE NOTE- some gps and mapping services may take you to the wrong location, so to be on the safe side, just follow the simple directions off this page to find our shop)
Some might say we are " off the beaten path", but that's the way we like it!
Valley Mill Kayak Shop is less than 20 minutes north of the 495 capital beltway, in Germantown MD.
The easiest way to get to us from the 495 Capital Beltway is to take the River Road exit (#39) towards Potomac (route 190w). Stay on River Road for about 12 miles until you reach a stop sign (it will appear that River Road ends).
Make a right turn at that stop sign onto Seneca Road.
Proceed 7 tenths of a mile on Seneca, and look for the "Valley Mill Camp" sign on your left. (If you reach Darnestown Rd., you've missed us). The sign is earth toned, and easy to miss. There is a wooden fence along the road before the sign appears on your left.
When you enter the parking lot you will see our main office right away, but our kayak shop is down in the woods BEHIND the main office. As you are facing the main office, look for the gravel road to the right marked with an orange kayak tied to a tree, and follow the "Boat Shop" signs
Follow those signs till you see the building down in the woods with the kayak above the door and you have found the Valley Mill Kayak Shop!
