boat rentals

Rent a Canoe, Kayak, or Paddleboard

Get out on the water on Lightning Lake during your stay at Manning Park with our boat rentals. Enjoy an adventure in a two-seater canoe, five-person Mackenzie canoe, rowboat, kayak or stand-up paddleboard. We have hourly and day rates available at the Boathouse (located at the Lightning Lake Day Use Area). This is fun for the whole family! The Boathouse also stocks a variety of snacks, cold drinks, and ice cream treats.

The Boathouse typically opens May long weekend until Thanksgiving (weather permitting). When the Boathouse is closed, rentals are handled through the Manning Park Resort Front Desk.
