The kayak rental program is being offered by Naperville Kayak which obtained a concessions license from the District in February. A maximum of 30 rented kayaks will be allowed at one time on the lake, which has an 80-watercraft limit. Private kayaks can still be launched on the lake, which is located on Royce Road, west of Route 53. Kayak rentals are restricted to ages 18 and older. Children ages 17 and under must be accompanied on the water by a parent or legal guardian over 18 years of age.
