My wife and I went tandem kayaking (they have good deals with the Rocky card) and had a lot of fun, being on the water gives you a different perspective of the town and our time flew by. Prices were reasonable and they have all kinds of boats and bikes

Overview: Visited the lake and rented a 2 person kayak. We were quickly checked in, and in a matter of minutes were lead outside, fitted with a lifejacket and pushed out in a fairly nice kayak. I say "fairly nice" because it was indeed showing some wear, and had a little water left in the bottom from the previous customers.... More

We rented two 7-person pontoon boats and tooled around on Lake Estes for a few hours. We saw several eagles, had a picnic lunch, but were disappointed that we couldn't swim in Lake Estes. The marina staff were helpful, and one even saved my credit card and driver's license that I had left in the store before departing for the... More

We rented a pantoon for our son and grandson to fish and us to enjoy the sun and scenery, The staff at the marina told them where the "honey" hole was. Two rainbow trout later, a very fun time on the lake was had by all !!

Wonderful, friendly staff. Very fair with rental prices and times. On various days of our stay in Estes Park we rented a paddleboat, kayaks and a pontoon boat. Staff was great to deal with and really helpful.

The lake is a great place to walk around. App.4 miles. DO NOT RENT the two people bikes. It looks like it would be fun but is more work than you could ever believe.

I haven't ever rented a boat from somewhere before but it seemed like a good price! We had fun with the small pontoon boat it gave us just the right view to see that there was an aerial tram near by. We rode around for about an hour looking at all the mountains around us!

Lake Estes Trail is a cost free, pleasurable 3.7mile perimeter trail that goes around the historic Lake Estes. You can access it either at Lake Estes Marina (east end) or by walking down Lake Front St off Hwy 34 or by way of the Convention & Visitors’ Center off Hwy 36 (west end). It appeared to be a very popular... More

I rented a paddle boat for my young teen grandchildren and they had a great time! I was a little apprehensive but the lake was very smooth and I could keep them in my sight too. The young men manning the boat rentals were helpful and very pleasant. A nice experience and quite reasonable. The marina is very nice with... More
