Susquehanna Kayak & Canoe Rentals to Open Third Location

Susquehanna Kayak & Canoe Rentals is expanding to Lackawanna State Park in North Abington Township. They will rent out paddleboards, single and tandem kayaks, pedal boats, canoes, and rowboats (with and without electric motors) for visitors to explore Lake Lackawanna.

Susquehanna Kayak & Canoe Rentals now operates three locations across Northeastern Pennsylvania. Their original shop in Falls opened in 2007, providing boat rentals along the Susquehanna River. In 2019, they opened the boat concession at Frances Slocum State Park in Wyoming, Luzerne County.

With the new location, Lackawanna State Park will be the only place in Lackawanna County to offer kayak rentals.

“For me personally, it’s exciting because we serve three counties: Wyoming, Luzerne, and Lackawanna,” said Art Coolbaugh, owner of Susquehanna Kayak & Canoe Rentals. “It’s also great for people from Clarks Summit and Scranton. They don’t have to drive far to rent a kayak and get out on the water. Lackawanna State Park will be right in their backyard.”

The Lackawanna State Park boat rental opens on May 24, just in time for Memorial Day weekend. Hours will be 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekends. They will remain open until Labor Day.

The rental stand will also sell supplies like bait and firewood. In the future, Coolbaugh hopes to offer bicycle rentals so visitors can discover the park’s popular mountain biking trails.

The Lackawanna State Park boat rental is located near the pool complex. For more information, call 570-540-1587 or visit kayaktheriver.com for details and online booking.
