Know Before You Go

How to Book
Click the “Reserve Now” button above to book your date and time.

Bring a printed and completed waiver (one per person) with you to expedite your check-in process. We also have waivers available on-site.  

Arrival Time
We recommend showing up 15 – 30 minutes before your reserved time (find parking, sign waivers, sunscreen, restrooms, etc). To maximize water time, your party should be ready to go 10 minutes before your reservation time.

Stone Mountain Park Lake Rentals is a cashless location.

A daily parking pass ($20) or annual parking pass ($40) is required to enter Stone Mountain Park. You can purchase parking on-site or pre-purchase parking here

Once you enter the park, follow the signs to the EAST LAKE (blue) park zone and The Commons Parking Lot. There are designated parking spots at the Lakeside Beach Pavilion. If those spots are full you can park anywhere in the Commons Parking Lot.

We love pets, but unfortunately not on the rental equipment.

Late Fees
We recommend paddling back at least 15 minutes before your scheduled end time. If you are not back by the end of your reserved time, we will, unfortunately, have to charge for the extended time. Please try to be courteous of the next guest(s) scheduled to be out on the water.  

Inclement Weather
Weather can be unpredictable, and our priority is to keep you safe. In case of severe inclement weather, such as storms, strong winds, or unsafe water conditions, we may cancel or reschedule your reservation.
