Perry County Kayak and Canoe Rental now open for the summer
PERRY COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) – For those who want to spend some time on the water and rent a kayak or canoe, now is the time as Perry County Kayak and Canoe Rental is now open for the summer.
The rental service was also closed last year, along with several community pools and outdoor activities across the region, in order to follow safety recommendations.
Now open, people can rent a kayak and canoe for five dollars per boat for four hours on Thursday and Friday, or seven dollars per boat for four hours on Saturday and Sunday.
Supervisor Tyler York said it was an exciting time as the country struggles to return to a sense of normalcy.
“I think it’s a good thing for young people to be able to go out and do something. We were all locked up last year and it’s time for everyone to come out and start doing things again and it’s a great way to do it, ”he said.
York said to rent a kayak or canoe, renters must certify that all renters are 18 or older. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult and have parental or guardian authorization signed.
Boats can only be used in the North Fork of the Kentucky River, from the North Fork River Trail to the Perry County Park Boat Ramp.
Rentals are open from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thursday to Saturday and from noon to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday.
