My husband and I went to this lake to kayak because where we are staying, at Lake Arrowhead, there is no kayaking since it's a private lake and no kayaking is allowed here unless you own your own vessel. We learned that the nearest place to kayak was at Lake Gregory, which was easy enough to get to, 10 minutes from Lake Arrowhead. We drove down 189 and 18, a scenic enough route. Lake Gregory was easy enough to find. The kayaking place was across the lake from the main parking lot, the one most apparent from route 18. Not a difficult walk around to the other side. We passed by a muddly area of the lake that was closed off from the rest of the lake; this area was near some drains and was muddly. There was a lot of fish on this end of the lake,
The kayaking place was easy enough to find. There was a friendly older gentleman who rented out the kayaks and canoes. Rate was $7 per hour. Kayaks were single. Two people could go on each canoe. So we took a canoe. It was true he said no beaching anywhere, but we didn't go there to beach, we wanted to row, so row we did. The lake is a much smaller lake than lake Arrowhead but is still beautiful, rimmed by pines. It got kind of windy on one end of the lake. The sun was also strong in late July, and my husband is senstiive to sun, so we spent only one hour. Then we went to rent one of those red boards, which was for $2 for half hour, and we swam around on that for half an hour. There was a bunch of summer camp kids there, so it was a little crowded. They took turns repeatedly going on the water slide; I wanted to go on it too, but the water looked a strange shade of green, so I did not. All in all it was a nice little afternoon we spent at Lake Gregory.
