    5 star ratingThe people here were very friendly and helpful, and seemed quite laid back. Some other people were launching their own kayaks too, and there wasn't a docking fee! I really enjoyed checking out the lake and river at our own pace.

    5 star ratingWe had a great time! The staff was very helpful in matching my daughter up with a very manageable kayak. If I don't rent her another one from headwaters it's because I will have bought her her own from the shop. Thanks again!

  • 5 star ratingWhat a great experience... this is a great way to end the day! We paddled about two hours in Lodi Lake and the Mokeulame River as the sun was going down. Our group had several experienced kayakers but also a few people who had never kayaked before.

    Our guide, Linda was helpful and knowledgeable!

    5 star ratingI tried out Stand-Up Paddleboard Yoga for the first time through Headwaters and it was super fun! The yoga instructor is very friendly and made everyone feel comfortable on their paddleboard, no matter what level they were at. It was a great workout in a beautiful location and I look forward to doing it again!
