Come Paddle With Us
Come paddle with us on Lake Lanier and take advantage of all LCKC has to offer. We have a wide range of programs for ages 7 and up and a fleet of kayaks, canoes, stand-up paddle boards and dragon boats.
No Experience Required
No experience is required and LCKC provides the equipment. Better yet, paddling is a lifetime sport, can be picked up at any age, and provides a great all-over workout.
Located at the 1996 Olympic Venue
Located at the site of the 1996 Lake Lanier Olympic Venue, LCKC keeps the Olympic legacy alive. We offer beautiful scenery, a large “no-wake” zone around the boathouse, and a world-class flatwater racing course.
