New Contact Free Boat Rentals

In response to the current COVID 19 Situation, our pontoon boat rental procedure has been changed to conform to the social distancing guidelines set by the CDC and WV State Health Authorities.  Rest assured that all of our watercraft and equipment is thoroughly disinfected/sanitized between every rental.

With our Office/Gift Shop now having a minimum occupancy of two (2) people at a time, following the contact free check in process to pick up your pontoon boat will ensure that you and your crew will be able to spend most of your time where you want to be...out on the lake!

Please download signed liability releases into an email and send to our office prior to your arrival which minimizes the amount of paperwork that nees to be done the morning of your rental.  Pre-arrangement of the rental deposit along with copies of the Boat Captain's and/or the person towing the watercraft's drivers license and vehicle insurance card sure will speed things up in the morning also.

Allowing your crew to form a line to enter the gift shop in the morning will not be conducive to getting your watercraft out on the water in a timely fashion.  We suggest encouraging them to browse the shop when you return in the afternoon.  We will be extending our gift shop hours in the evenings on busy weekends to accommodate the last minute t-shirt or whatever catches your eye to take home a memory of a great day that you and your crew had on Summersville Lake.

If quiet solitude of an unspoiled cove is what you are looking for than, a self propelled boat is an excellent choice.

Years of paddling experience has helped us in choosing well built comfortable solo and tandem kayaks and canoes that are well known for their stability and handling characteristics. Our kayaks have adjustable high backed folding seats and extra large rolled edge cockpits for easy entry and excellent lumbar support when cruising.  Our high volume canoes can comfortably accommodate two adult paddlers with enough center room for child, dog or gear . . . without being overloaded.


All of our paddleboat hulls feature a heel to toe keel design that allows for great tracking and is well suited for lake conditions. Even in an occasional crosswind, you will find this type of hull less exhausting than other boats that you may have tried in the past, and their polyethylene construction is much more forgiving than fiberglass, which makes them ideal for exploring our uniquely rugged cliff shorelines.

Stand up Paddle Board Couple


Stand up Paddle Boards in a variety of sizes for a sensation of freedom out on the water like no other.  Stand Up Paddle Boarding improves balance, works core muscles and promotes perfect posture so it is more than just a fun way to see more of the horizon than traditional kayaking.dog man on paddle board
