Awesome day on the lake. The staff was so friendly and helpful! They even had a reserved parking spot for me. I was able to bring my 2 dogs on the boat, which some places do not allow. I will use this business again.

We are new to SC and Lexington so we appreciate the quick and easy service. SUPs n kayak were prepared when we got there. Just sign and off you go. Will definitely be back and rent something else for a weekend staycation.

We have rented boats in the past with great experiences. This was our first time renting other items. Just as quick and simple. You are not permitted to go out to main body of lake, but there are three coves you can go into which...More
