Get a different perspective on the granite dells by viewing them from out on the water.

Watson lake is relatively small so it makes a great place for beginners to kayak. One end of the lake is surrounded by large granite dells. Depending on the water levels you can kayak around and in between many of them. We kayaked around for about 2 hours before we felt like we had seen everything.There is a $3 fee to park at Watson Lake. Check Here if you need to rent a kayak or canoe.
