Kayak Lake O'Dowd

Details

Added by Ian Jamieson

Calm, relatively clean and shallow waters. Lots to explore on the lake.

This beautiful, calm lake is ideal for those who prefer seclusion out on the water.

Start out on the north side of the lake, and kayak or canoe towards the golf course - there are a number of bays to explore, along the way. Then head over to the eastern shore, which offers lots of scenic spots. On the northwest side of the lake, you can usually find lily pads in the mid to late summer. If your arms start feeling sore, kayak/canoe around the island in the middle of the lake for a relatively easy and cool place to take a break.
