Canoes, kayaks and paddleboards are a great way to enjoy our local lakes, beaches and rivers. They are powered by you and provide a great way to take to the water. Whether you are paddling down a scenic route or rushing through white water in your kayak, there are many canoe and kayak routes throughout the Northwest. Our lakes also provide a great opportunity for paddleboard enthusiasts. In some communities, classes are offered for people new to the sport and paddleboards and kayaks can also be rented in some areas.
