Lakeside Park Boat Rentals

Lakeside park watersports centre on Alta Lake. Where summer adventure begins

Dip your paddle in the calm waters of Alta Lake while spectacular glacier capped mountains and ski hills capture your gaze.

For the past 100 years, pioneers and tourists alike have paddled, fished and swam in its clear waters.
