Come to The Backpackers Shop to test paddle kayaks on our Demo Lake!
Whether you’re interested in an entry-level recreational kayak, a fishing kayak, an open cockpit kayak, or a technical sea-touring kayak, we will help you find the right one for your adventures. With hundreds of kayaks in stock, there are many options for all types of paddlers.
Not sure which boat is right for you? The Backpackers Shop now has a test paddling lake that opened in the summer of 2016 on the west side of the property. Free paddling demos will be offered throughout the summer. Check out our events page to register for a time slot!
Don’t worry about car topping that canoe or kayak. The Backpackers Shop® is known far and wide for its expert installation and inventory of Yakima and Thule multisport racks. Of course, our selection of paddling accessories is unmatched!
