Rueter-Hess Recreation

Water Recreation

PLEASE READ:  Did you know that Aquatic Invasive Species live in dirty and wet conditions on paddleboards, canoes, kayaks, lifejackets, and other water recreation equipment? Because Rueter-Hess is a drinking water Reservoir, only clean and dry recreation equipment can access the water. Remember to thoroughly clean and dry your recreation equipment before coming to the Reservoir. 

Scheduled days are Fridays through Mondays, beginning Memorial Day weekend through October.  Participants may provide their own watercraft (paddle board, canoe, or kayak).  Paddle boards, kayaks (single and double), will be available for rent (1-hour; 2-hour or half day) as well as life vests.  For more information click here.

The cost is $10 per day per vehicle.  Register here.

  • Lifejackets must be worn by all participants.
  • Ages 2 to 7 may share a watercraft with a guardian. Ages 8 to 15 may have their own watercraft but a registered adult guardian must be present on the water.
  • Walk-up registration is NOT available.
  • No pets.
  • No fishing.
  • No swimming.
  • No rafts or inflatable tubes.
  • No alcohol.
