There are numerous streams and lakes along Kentucky State Parks for canoes and kayaks. In fact, Kentucky has more navigable miles of water than any other state in the United States, except for Alaska. Offering everything from flatwater to whitewater boating, there are enough adventures here to keep you going for days, though quick weekend getaways are popular options as well. Guests may bring their own or some parks rent canoes and kayaks during the warmer months. Guests can enjoy a day on the lake or paddle their way down a creek or river. Some parks offer regular paddling trips and gear rentals for a fee. You can also make camping reservations at many state parks if you want to end your day of paddling with a snooze under the stars.
