If you looking to paddle on Lake Mendota, this is a great place to rent a boat. We kayaked close to shore and enjoyed looking at the beautiful lakefront homes. The staff were knowledgeable and it was easy to rent a boat online. When we got there, our boats were ready for us. Everything was organized so that life jackets were sanitized too. I really appreciated that. The price was reasonable as well. The only issue is that there are larger boats on Lake Mendota that you need to be aware of.

Due to a storm the night before the boat rental stayed closed on the day we came to rent kayaks. However, plenty of picnic tables at the beach and up in the shelter. The swimming beach is only about 30 feet wide and lots of weeds in the water but you can swim out to the where the sailboats are moored. The kayak prices were very good (if they had been open) Beautiful park and good parking.

Staffed by young, enthusiastic people who know exactly what to do to get you safely in and out on the water. The watercraft and PFDs were all in great condition and extras like waterproof containers were available. To avoid motorboats and their wakes, get in and out early.

We use Marshall Park as a sailboat launch and it works well. A bit of weed in the water, but there is good parking, enough launches, and friendly people.
