Search among West Virginia's most spectacular cliffs -n- coves for that perfect spot to get away from it all. 

With an increased interest in active outdoor leisure activities, boater's of all ages are migrating from larger power driven boats towards smaller personal propelled watercraft.


We listened and have scaled the size and types of boats in our rental fleet to give you better access to the many outstanding playspots hidden among Summersville Lake's incredible shoreline topography.

From tradional canoes, to solo and tandem kayak and sit-on-tops, having the right watercraft for the experience that you seek makes all of the difference, and our boatyardmen are really good at helping you select the right boat for you.

We now offer Stand Up Paddleboards in Men's, Women's and Youth sizes for a sensation of freedom out on the water like none other.
