These people are so chill! We got two single kayaks for 2 hours. Because we didn't want to bring our phones onto the lake, we were wondering about when we needed to bring the boats back. They were super relaxed about the time and told us an "ish" time to be back by. I loved that. I don't want to be stressed out when I'm trying to have a relaxing day! We will definitely be back. Also the equipment was amazing. We both used brand new fiberglass kayaks. They were so clean and fast! They just glided through the water. Can you imagine how many rental trips you would have to go on before that $30 for 2 hours equated to the cost of the kayak and all the gear? A lot. A lot. +++ Plus they put the kayak in the water for you and handle all the gear!

Rentals seem like an add on. Kayak smelled deplorable. Would be nice to kayak in morning. However, afternoon only hours do not allow. Coves filled with boat docks and boat houses. Did not allow for nature viewing. Wildlife viewing was slim. May be a great facility for athletes perfecting skills. I would not recommend for casual boaters looking to enjoy the wildlife. Facility seemed run down. Kind of sad.
