When it comes to lake kayaking, canoeing, and paddle boarding, locals know that Payette Lake plays second fiddle to the North Fork of the Payette River. This lazy stretch of river was made for meandering. Flanked by soaring pine trees and lush wetlands, it is not uncommon to see deer, eagles, fox, or even the occasional moose on the bank. Beneath the surface, schools of fish dart back and forth under your paddles in the crystal clear water. We recommend launching at the North Beach boat ramp. In the heat of summer, the launch area can be a bit congested, so for the best experience, set out up river.

The farther you go, the fewer people you will see. Remember to pack some snacks or a picnic lunch. There are lots of great beaches to stop at along the way!
