This is also a fabulous place to enjoy canoeing and kayaking on Big Lake, Baum Lake, Hat Creek, Fall River, Ahjumawi Lava Springs State Park or some of the other fabulous rivers and lakes in the area. InterMountain Adventures specializes in Hobie Kayak rentals. We chose to work with Hobie Kayaks as they are the leaders in peddle powered water craft allowing users to use their largest muscle for propulsion, while utilizing their hands for photography or fishing. InterMountain Adventures also can help you with hiking and biking ideas, as well as other types of recreation. Another provider you can use for kayak and canoe rentals and kayak guide services is Eagle Eye’s Kayak Guide Service.
