A self-serve kayaking system within the national park of the Twin Cities: the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area! There are rental stations positioned along the Mississippi River and on Pickerel Lake.
New This Year: The Gorge route from Bohemian Flats Park to the Lake Street Bridge. This calm stretch was formed thousands of years ago, when a cascading waterfall slowly making its way upriver carved out a deep channel. Reservations can be made up to 21 days in advance.
