NOTE: You must bring a credit card AND driver's license in order to rent a kayak or SUP.
For those who prefer to paddle at their own pace, kayak and stand-up paddleboard (SUP) rentals are available at our Yak Shack Rental Center in the Rocky River Reservation in Lakewood, Ohio.
Our rental center offers direct access to the Rocky River and Lake Erie. We have a selection of stable light touring boats from P&H Kayaks, Venture Kayaks, and Necky Kayaks and SUPs by Boardworks and C4 Watermen available for rental by the hour. Sea kayaks are available for full-day reservations only.
Kayak rentals are available beginning Memorial Day weekend and ending the last weekend of September.
Summer hours are: Monday-Friday from 11am-7pm and Saturday & Sunday from 9am-6pm.
We are open on the following holidays from 10am-5pm: Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day.
Our Fall hours (after Labor Day through September) are: Saturday & Sunday from 9am-6pm, weather and Lake conditions permitting.
Reservations are accepted. Just call us at 1-866-529-2541 to request boats. If you have a reservation, we do ask that you show up 10 minutes prior to your reservation start time to review safety guidelines, sign waivers, and get fitted for equipment. Please note that we will not hold kayaks or SUPs if you are more than 15 minutes late for your reservation.
