Kayaks are available to rent for 1 hour. Kayaks are rented on a first come, first serve basis. The kayaks available for rent are 10-foot kayaks that weigh 41 pounds. These kayaks are rated for the average user. Due to weight restrictions on these vessels, no one over 275 pounds is allowed in the kayaks.
Rentals include a single person kayak, PFD (otherwise known as a personal floatation device) and renters are fitted with a paddle. Everyone who rents a kayak must wear a PFD. Renters may bring their own or wear the one provided.
Renters portage the kayak on the trail from the rental building to the kayak ramp on the Red River. Renters are responsible for returning the kayak to the rental building to complete their rental.
A person must be over 18 years of age to sign the rental contract. Any person over the age of 12 may be in an individual kayak. No one under the age of 12 is allowed in the kayaks.
*Kayak rentals may not be available if river levels exceed 17ft. or flow rates have a high paddling scale rating. Please call 701-356-2106 to verify if rentals are available.
