Lake Logan State Park

A popular spot for kayaking on your own is at Lake Logan State Park. Lake Logan Marina provides single and double kayak rentals. Lake Logan has a ten-horsepower powerboat limit, which keeps the waters calm for kayaking. Launch your kayak from the beach and explore this 400-acre lake. We recommend stopping at one of the picnic areas in Lake Logan State Park to enjoy lunch after an afternoon of kayaking.

Take a kayaking tour on the Hocking River with the experienced guides at Hocking Hills Adventures. You will have the opportunity to kayak past the 100-foot long bridge made by natural rock formations during the Rockbridge river trip. We recommend Crockett’s run river trip on a slower part of the Hocking River if you are new to kayaking. Hocking Hills Adventures offers a unique experience with the moonlight river tour. Paddle the calm waters of Hocking River by moonlight during this relaxing kayaking trip.
