For 23 years Camillus Kayak has outfitted area aquaphiles with premium, quality equipment for fun, energetic maritime outings. The well-stocked boatique is stuffed to the gills with brand-name recreational kayaks (13'–14' long) and stand-up paddleboards available for daily ($50) or weekly ($200) rental. Larger premium kayaks (a minimum 16' long; $65/day, $275/week) increase wave slicing speed and the odds of winning back the farm in upstream drag races. Paddlers and sentient driftwood looking for a change of pace can navigate the waters atop a stand-up paddleboard, which combines the exhilarating adventure and exercise of boating with the familiarity of standing. From the higher vantage of a buoyant stand-up board, waterwalkers can witness submerged mysteries that are often hidden to the boatbound eye, such as lakebed land grabs or the ascension of angelfish. Rentals include vessels, paddles, a whistle, life vest, and temporary car-top carrier to ensure a safe and convenient trip.

With nearly a football field's worth of waterfront access along Fourth Lake, the sandy beaches and boat launch of Palmer Point are an ideal spot to relax in the sun or go for a carefree outing on the water. A variety of rentals are available throughout the summer, including pontoon boats and fishing boats, as well as more low-key kayaks, canoes, and paddle-boards. Groups of up to nine people can shack up in one of the beautiful, fully-furnished lakeside houses, which feature amenities such as screened-in porches and private decks.
