Pactola Lake: Private Kayak Or Paddleboard Experience
1-800-987-9852 Chat Now
Pactola Lake is a perched lake that collects water from the East and West Fork of the Deschutes River and other surrounding rivers. Because of this, the water is clean, and there aren't any algae.
The kayak or paddleboard experience begins with an incredible drive up to the lake in an off-road 4×4 vehicle. It takes about 2 hours to get to Pactola Lake from Bend. When you arrive, your truck gets parked for you for the entire experience until you return (make sure you bring all your stuff out with you before your vehicle is hidden, so it doesn't rust). You then walk a short distance to the lake, where you are then outfitted with everything you need for your private kayak or paddleboard experience.
The first part of the private kayak or paddleboard experience is a more calm part of the lake. After you complete this first leg of the trip, you head far down the lake to another little nook in some rocks. This area is protected and offers excellent views around the room with less boat traffic than upfront.
This second part of the trip is a more open area where you can kayak or paddleboard. It is well maintained with a lovely river bottom with rocks and small islands to explore.
Once you have finished your experience, you drive back to the start point where your vehicle is waiting for you.
