How to Explore the Lakes Around Dallas by Kayak

There are many beautiful lakes to explore just minutes from our luxury apartments in downtown Dallas. Just a short drive away, you’ll find opportunities to rent kayaks and paddleboards and enjoy the area’s natural scenery. These are a few of the top companies that offer kayak and equipment rentals around Dallas:

White Rock Paddle Co. 

Just five miles northeast of downtown Dallas, White Rock Lake offers a serene and scenic atmosphere. Here, you can rent kayaks on-site at White Rock Paddle Co. You’ll also find a beautiful hike and bike trail, the White Rock Lake Museum, a bird watching area, a dog park, picnic areas, and more. Bird lovers will enjoy the opportunity to spot swans, pelicans, seagulls, loons, and ducks. You might also hear locals mention the Lady of the Lake, one of Dallas’s best-known ghostly legends that is said to inhabit White Rock Lake Park. 

Trinity River Kayak Co. 

About a half-hour drive from Dallas, you’ll find Trinity River, which runs through Coppell, TX.  Located right along the shore of the river, Trinity River Kayak Co. offers a variety of kayak adventures to suit all levels. They also supply equipment for river kayak fishing. Fishermen will find plentiful catfish, bass, and trout in the Trinity River. 

DFW Surf 

Enjoy a weekend in the city of Little Elm, known as the town with the lake attitude. Look for the surf shack on the north side of Little Elm Beach, where you can rent equipment from DFW Surf year-round. DFW Surf offers standup paddleboard and kayak rentals, as well as bike rentals and tours. Check out their weekly standup paddleboard yoga class, retreats, and other events. 

If you enjoy these outdoor activities on the lake, consider checking out Dallas’s botanical gardens or these other parks near our Victory Park apartments. Contact us today to schedule a tour and make The Christopher in Dallas your new home.
