Kayaking 101

Never been kayaking? Want to explore what your park has to offer? Get on board and enjoy the lake in a whole new way!

Reservation necessary, kayaks and life vests limited: Call (903) 395-3100. Be prepared with your life vest size (chest size and body weight) and choice of single (1 seat) or tandem (2 seats) kayak.

This program will last about 2 hours. Arrive 10 minutes early to get situated with your belongings and the equipment. Because this is a beginner’s program, safety and basic kayaking will be taught first on land (about 30 min) before we set out on the water. Anyone arriving late will still be required to go through the safety training/basics check. The last 15 minutes of the program will be used to clean up and put the kayaks and safety equipment away. Expect to get soaked and have fun!

Ages: 10 years & older (children must share a kayak with a parent/guardian)

Meet: Bluebonnet

Bring: copy of confirmation email, water, sunscreen, towel, water shoes (barefoot/flip flops are a no go), long sleeves, hat with neck tie/drawstring, clothes to change into after, key floatie (optional)

Cost: Park programs are open to the public and free with park entrance fee ($5 per persons ages 13 and up; children 12 and under are always free! Park entry free with Texas State Park Pass.).

*Events and programs are subject to cancellation due to weather, if cancelled an update will be made to this posting. Please contact park staff for more information and the latest updates.
