Explore Mount Hood’s scenic lakes from a kayak! Feel like you’re part of the mountain! Our  kayaks are easy enough that people of all ages can participate. Single or double are available. Kayaks can be rented at Mt. Hood Outfitters in Government Camp, now located in the Huckleberry Building, or we can deliver to the lake! We have the exclusive permit in the Mt. Hood National Forest to deliver directly to you.

What is a kayak?

  • A kayak traditionally has a covered deck with one or more seats for paddlers. Kayaks are small, relatively narrow and propelled by paddlers with a double-bladed paddle.

Your experience on one of the many Mount Hood lakes is sure to be blissful. In case you’re looking for a reason to start paddling, we’ve come up with a few:

  1. Be close to nature: kayaks are a great way to be close to the water and escape the hustle and bustle of Portland. Get away from it all and enjoy what Mount Hood has to offer.
  2. Exercise: Paddling gives you aerobic exercise mixed with upper body conditioning. Kayaking is a low impact activitie and can improve both strength and flexibility.
  3. Relaxation: There are few things in life more relaxing than sitting in a kayak and soaking in the mountain air. So write your kayak rental off on your taxes and come up for some quality stress relief.
  4. Build Relationships: Whether you and your friends or family just want to hang out or you share a competitive nature you will surely grow closer through your paddling adventures on Mount Hood.
  5. Because It’s Fun: Why do you need anymore reason than it’s fun? Kayak for a good time and all the other benefits of paddling will follow suit.
