I did not like the rough waters on this lake for paddle boarding. The paddle boards they use have a small groove all the way around and would take on water from the wake of the boats passing by. I probably would not re-visit this location.

Nice kayaks, incredibly friendly staff that have tamed some random ducks and always have crackers available for people to feed them, super relaxed atmosphere - loved it here!

My husbands kayak started sinking due to a leak about an hour after we had left the pier. He ended up in the water and we had to stop three more times so he could empty the water out. When we got back, he was told sometimes that happens with that kayak and told us she hoped we had a good time. Beautiful area but not safe kayaks. Would definitely not recommend this place to anyone.

We arrived about 10 minutes early and the people before us returned the kayaks right on time. So we started on time and ended on time. No hassles. Crew was helpful, friendly, and nice. We had a great experience. Nice area to kayak. Our first time on this lake.

Be aware that there are no reservations for kayaks or paddle boards on the weekend. It is first come first serve and staff are inconsistent with customers. And if they are busy, which when it's summer and you can't reserve a spot they will be busy, the staff will be short with you. The paddle boards I inquired about were given to someone who arrived after me. They need reservations on weekends.
