Did you know that PA is the #1 state in the lower 48 for the most miles of moving water including rivers, streams, lakes, and creeks?


Middle Creek Kayak Rentals LLC is a privately-owned kayak rental business located on the fringes of Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area. We rent solo and tandem recreational kayaks for a serene yet fun day of paddling on the lake.

middle creek

Middle Creek is a popular destination for un-powered boat users (mainly canoes and kayaks) looking for a peaceful place to watch wildlife, exercise, or just to enjoy some time on the water. Powered boats are NOT permitted so you won’t need to deal with the noise or wake of larger boats sharing the same water.
Picnic tables are available in the woods a few steps from the lake.
A portable restroom is available.
