Able to rent kayaks, sail boats, and pontoon boats to go out on Lake Estes. Pricey but, nice views of Estes park from the lake.

We rented the pontoon boat for 30 minutes, which was just about right to cruise around the lake and get some cool photos.

Great prices for short outings on the lake. We took a kayak out on the lake and then rode around on the bikes for a while to dry off. Wonderful views from the water. Well worth the stop

My wife and I took a paddle boat out onto Lake Estes. We only took a half hour time due to the price per hour. While a bit on the expensive side for paddle boating, the lake was beautiful and wasn't very busy when we went. Very glad we did it and when we come back to Estes Park we'll... More

My husband and I took a paddle boat out into the middle of Lake Estes. It was so much fun and so peaceful! Totally worth the money, and even then it was a great price! Would definitely recommend!

We headed out to Lake Estes hoping for a relaxing time of kayaking. Unfortunately, it was quite windy and there were several motorized boats so the lake was quite choppy. We were ok, but others who were kayaking for the first time may have had some trouble. I guess just pay attention to lake traffic/wind if you are planning to... More

My boys fished on the lake for a bit & had a blast. We rented fishing rods from the bait shop. Nice walking path around the lake.

Twice we have canoed on the lake and will definitely do it again on our next visit to Estes Park area. The staff at the Marina is very helpful and friendly. Lots of options besides boats on the lake. We have also used the bike rentals. The rental fees are very reasonable.

Beautiful views surround lake Estes. And then you have the extremely rude people who work at the marina. Note - managed by the local rec district. Absolutely unprofessional staff. Too bad the lake is so small that there isn't an alternative to put this horribly ran 'business' our of business.
