Howard Marsh Kayak Rentals

Howard Marsh Kayak Share is Open with limited equipment.

The region’s first kayak-share, installed at Howard Marsh in Jerusalem Township, is based on the bike share concept. Users rent boats by the hour using a smartphone. Six boats, along with paddles and personal flotation devices, are secured in lockers that open once payment is made through a cell phone app. 

Enjoy the unique experience of paddling a six-mile water trail through the marsh, and the convenience of not having to haul your own boat to the park.

Single Kayaks can be rented by the hour, $15
