Lake Rentals

Fontana Lake Rentals - (7 days a week (weather permitting)

Come join us for some fun in the sun with our kayak and stand-up paddleboard rentals on Fontana lake.  Rentals take place from the new SUP SHACK!  The SUP SHACK is located on the water at Almond Boat Park Marina (1165 Almond Boat Park Rd, Bryson City, NC 28713).  Parking at the marina is $5 for the day but that is included with your rental. There is a restroom at the Marina that you are welcome to use!

Participants must use caution and general water navigation skills to navigate a lake with boat traffic. Fontana Lake is made up of may fingers/channels and can be hard to navigate, you will be given recommendations on where you should go. Paddling the lake can be strenuous depending on the elements. Please know your limits when paddling, know that you have to paddle back just as far as you paddled out and that you will be more fatigued on the way back and could have a headwind. Please bring drinking water and proper sun protection.
