Paddle boat rentals open for the season on Sunday, May 1! Bring the family and enjoy a scenic and relaxing morning or afternoon paddling around Lake Maury. For decades the local community has treasured our scenic lake, hiking its trails, marveling at its statues, skipping rocks across its shore. Now those same children bring their own families to create cherished memories. Early mornings are spent listening to its whispering waves and the soft plunk of a fishing lure sinking beneath its tranquil surface. The sweet sound of laughter ripples across its surface as you laugh with your buddies over “the one that got away.” Whether a die-hard fisherman or just in need of a relaxing day, visit us and start creating your own memories of Lake Maury today. While the Museum improves the boating and fishing opportunities for Park guests, boating will be restricted to paddle-boat rentals only for 2016, and fishing will not be allowed for the duration of 2016.
