The sagacious proprietors of Row Paddle Brushy Creek enable year-round water wrangling on idyllic Brushy Creek Lake with a fleet of stable tandem kayaks. Beginning paddlers and veteran boaters alike can take to the sturdy sit-on-top kayaks while careening around the 38-acre lake for 60 nature-filled minutes, catching glimpses of nearby fauna while disciplining errant waves with precise bops on their heads.

The Bushy Creek Lake Park area features a playground, nature trails, picnic tables, and barbecue grills for preparing fresh catches.
