Paddle Western Lake

Two kayaks, each with an adult and a child, paddle on the coastal dune lake.

Enjoy a day on the water at Grayton Beach State Park. Explore Western Lake, a 100-acre coastal dune lake surrounded by the natural areas of the state park. Coastal dune lakes occur in only a few places around the world, so exploring this geological wonder rare is a treat.

Bring your own kayak or canoe. Paddle boards and kayaks are available for rent and are provided by the Friends of Grayton Beach and Deer Lake State Parks. The calm tranquil waters of the coastal dune lake are suitable for paddlers of all experience levels.
