We rented a canoe to explore the lake. The staff were very friendly. Service was quick.The canoe was good. It was a very pleasant experience to be canoeing on the lake. We were able to stop at different parts and just sit alone - far away from people - and enjoy watching birds. Must do!

Unprofessional and rude employees that I interacted with today. I would not recommend this company! Absolutely disgraceful.

We arrived at 8:30 and waited an hour to get on a boat over. We had planned to walk back, but then hiked a lot further into the canyon with our 6-year-old than expected, so felt she couldn’t make it the extra 2 miles. We got in line at the 30 minute marker and it took easily an hour, primarily due to people jumping the line to join their separated parties. One woman brought an extra 7 people with her. The company may not be able to manage the entire long line, but once you get closer to the waiting area, they need to manage this type of behavior.

Just be prepared to wait or hike both ways if necessary. We hiked in to beat the possible afternoon weather because we were planning to go into Cascade. Thus, 10-4 didn’t seem to fit our specific needs. We got lucky and caught a boat back with no line. A sign in the west dock line said “wait time from here is 45 minutes” which concerned me since it’s only just opened so if they have a need for that sign now, I can’t imagine when it’s busy. So yes it was convenient, but we were very close to just hiking out. It does bring a lot of people to HF and IP that wouldn’t add to the crowds otherwise, so I am torn between how great it is for them to see those two sights, versus the intrusion of a “monorail” to the front door of the attractions, so to speak. Part of me wishes the 4 plus mile RT hike was necessary for the reward. Others probably think differently and I respect their opinions.

We took one of the last boats across the lake (big mistake). The boat ride was fine, but when we got to the other side, the line to come back across the lake was so long it was ridiculous. (There was good wifi and cell service there though--strange. It was good because I had to sign something last minute for the refi on my house and wasn't able to get service anywhere else). We decided not to wait for the boat back and to walk around the lake on the trail. It wasn't too bad of a hike physically, but it was longer than I thought it would seem. It was beautiful. When we were close to getting back, a sudden freak windstorm came up. It was crazy. As soon as we reached our car, the sky opened up and it POURED. We got really lucky. It was quite the adventure. I only expected to take a boat ride, see a waterfall, and ride the boat back. We definitely ended up with much more than planned. There really should be more boats bringing people back, or a system that people have specific return times.
