Welcome to Lake Gaston Outfitters rental kayaks and paddleboards! We have the largest rental fleet in the region with over 40 boats and boards available! We renew our fleet every year– no old or beat up gear here, and our gear isn't your basic "livery" rental gear - we only rent premium, comfortable, stable, kayaks and paddleboards from brands like Perception, SIC and Blue Water.
We have a variety of rental options to make your kayak and paddle board adventure on the lake the best it can be. We offer Sit-on, Sit-in, and tandem rental kayaks – and these are not the typical model you’ll find at livery outlets or big box stores. We rent the best kayaks Perception has to offer – comfortable and stable – and we complement them with paddles from Aqua-Bound. Regardless of the kayak or paddleboard you rent, you’re certain to have a great time on the lake.
Rental kayaks & paddleboards from Lake Gaston Outfitters are unique in that our location is centrally located on Eaton Ferry Road between the lake and Food Lion. Whether you’re in Jimmy’s Creek, River Ridge, Norcarva, Lee’s Creek, one of the campgrounds, or any place in between, our rentals are just a short drive away.
Our rental inflatable Stand Up Paddle Boards get you out on the water easily & quickly. Our boards are wide with a planing hull design for a nice stable ride on the lake and are super durable and easy to transport. Or, if transporting isn't a challenge, opt for a SIC hardboard - all our boards are light weight and family/guest friendly. Never worry about a damaging fiberglass board again! We not only match a premium AquaBound SUP paddle with each board, but for your safety we also include a leash and life vest with each rental.
We have decades of experience on the water and we share our knowledge with every rental - We want you to have an amazing paddle out on Lake Gaston, so we take the time to review all the adjustments in your kayak & paddle as demonstrate great paddling techniques. We love paddling on the lake and want you to the best time while you're here!
Please note we rent kayaks and paddle boards by the day. Rentals can be picked up when we open and must be returned before the store closes on the last day of your rental. Late returns will incur additional charges. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you need alternate pick-up and drop-off arrangements.
And if the warmer weather has your family dreaming of paddling a kayak around Lake Gaston, we’ve rounded up the top places to abandon your dock for awesome water exploration! From the gorgeous kayak launch at Steel Bridge to many back creek explorations around the lake, check out all the local places to play here.
