Kayaking on Lower Lake

Discover Adventure


Coming This Summer

We are delighted to be launching a new activity for our visitors, Kayaking.

Located on our lower lake, this is an area of stunning natural beauty and previously inaccessible to the public. It is perfect for those interested in trying out kayaking for the first time or those who are looking to do something fun and active to do during their visit to the park. Our kayaks are sit on as opposed to covered and are easy to navigate for the inexperienced.

We have two offerings at the park Instructor; Led Sessions and Kayak Rental Sessions:
