For Canoe Trail rental information, please contact the Park Office directly for instructions and reservations.  At this time, advance reservations are required (no walk-ins please). Renters are responsible for providing their own transportation. Due to the distance between the put-in and take-out locations, we recommend that renters bring two vehicles and park one at the take-out dock prior to beginning the paddle. No shuttle service is currently available from park staff, due to public health concerns.
