Canoes and Kayaks
We have a large number of canoes and several one-person and two-person kayaks with complimentary use for our guests.
Paddling on Long Lake
Exploring Long Lake in one of our canoes or kayaks is the perfect way to enjoy a day on the water. Paddles and life jackets are available from the office or bring your own. Each guest using a canoe or kayak must sign in through the office.
If you are interested in renting or purchasing more specific paddling gear, SUP rental (stand up paddleboard), we encourage you to visit the Reboot, Reset pop-up shop parked right by our beach.
For renting something you can take to another water body nearby or a multi-day trip please visit Raquette River Outfitters
Anyone who will be using one of our canoes or kayaks must be signed in through the office and must have a completed waiver.
Guests are responsible for returning any boat used back to the storage rack on the beach and bringing any life jackets and paddles back to the office.
Life jackets are provided unless you provide your own. Studies show if you choose to wear a life jacket and you fall overboard, it increases your chance of survival. We recommend everyone wear a life jacket. Life jackets must be worn by children under 12.)
Because there can be a lot of motorized traffic on the lake--including seaplanes--stay closer to the shore when possible.
Be aware that strong winds and large waves--such as wake from other watercraft-- can cause canoes or kayaks to turn over. Paddle directly into large oncoming waves to prevent this.
Be aware that cell phone service is limited on the lake and a signal may not be available in some areas.
