Horse-Drawn Canal Boat Rides

Fun for the Whole Family!

While at Historic Roscoe Village, you'll want to take the serene 45-minute ride down a restored section of the Ohio-Erie Canal, pulled by a strong team of draft horses.


Enjoy Ohio History on this Unique Ohio Attraction!

Set aboard the Monticello III and you’ll feel like you are actually gliding right into Ohio history! Relax and enjoy the natural beauty of the canal as it once was. Watch the hoggee lead the huge team of draft horses as they pull the canal boat gently along its way. As you listen to old canal tales from the captain describing 1800's life on the canal, you’ll feel like you actually have stepped back in time to the 1830's!

This unique attraction in Ohio has been on many "top things to do in Ohio" lists. Tourists from all over the country have traveled to Coshocton to experience this little piece of history! For those who have kids, there is no better way to educate your child about the importance of the Ohio-Erie Canal in Ohio's history without them even knowing it. Plan a trip this year!
