Kayak and SUP Rentals

LAKE PEARL –

the lake, beach, and some paddle activities are temporarily shut down due to algal blooms

   

Lake Pearl is a picturesque pond located mid way between Boston and Providence. It’s one of Wrentham’s three sizable lakes, rich with conservation lands and open spaces. Originally known as Whiting’s Pond, its history as a thriving dance hall and park soon gave way to its current use as a residential and recreational gem. Funded by the Sweatt Foundation and maintained by many local organizations like the Local Scout Group, Sweatt Beach has that small town lakefront beach charm that is enjoyed by many of the surrounding towns.

The beach provides a perfect location to paddle and enjoy the beauty of the shoreline. Eastern Mountain Sports provides Kayak and Stand Up Paddleboard Rentals as well as Kayak and Stand Up Paddleboard Classes and Tours for all to enjoy at this great paddling destination. Come take advantage of one of our great paddling opportunities and see why people rave about this little New England Gem.

Q: Do I need to make a reservation?
A: WE DO NOT ACCEPT RESERVATIONS during normal hours of operation. Rentals are first come, first served.

Q: I’ve never paddled before. Can I still rent a kayak or SUP?
A: Yes. Kayaks and paddleboards are fun for any ability level! We do not place restrictions on rentals due to lack of experience. We also offer kayak and paddleboard lessons. Please call 845-668-2030 for more information.
