Unfortunately, kayak and canoe rentals are
temporarily suspended due to staffing shortages.
Thank you for understanding.
The Friends of Black Bayou group owns eight (8) canoes, four (4) kayaks, and two (2) tandem kayaks, with all the needed accessories, and are happy to make them available for groups and individuals to use on Black Bayou Lake.
Those wishing to reserve canoes or kayaks may call the Refuge at 318-387-1114.
Renters should go to the Visitor Center to sign the rental contract, agreeing to comply with all applicable regulations and laws.
Daily rental fees are:
$30 for any two person craft (tandem kayak and canoes)
$20 for single kayak .
Current, paid-up members of FoBB may rent at half price.
Due to safety considerations, we do not rent canoes when the heat index is in excess of 100F or wind chill is below 45F or if there is a lake wind advisory. Please call in advance if you have any questions.
