Lake Woodlands Kayak Information

Riva Row

The Riva Row Boat House is located along the lower Woodlands Waterway, at Riva Row Park (2101 Riva Row, The Woodlands 77380), across the Waterway from Town Green Park. The Waterway is divided by 6-foot drop in elevation into an upper and lower section. The dam that creates this division is located at Riva Row Park, where the junction between the upper and lower pedestrian walkways provides an important connection between the free parking areas and The Woodlands Pavilion.

The Riva Row Boat House opened on Saturday, April 25, 2009 and features a kayak launch with direct access to Lake Woodlands via The Woodlands Waterway. The event featured an open house hosted by the Community Associations of The Woodlands and The Woodlands Development Company. Montgomery County residents can discover the pleasures of kayaking at this unique amenity in The Woodlands. 

Lakes Edge

The Lakes Edge Boat House opened in early 2016 on Lake Woodlands, offering single and tandem kayak rentals. This new facility is located next to the One Lakes Edge apartments at 1970 Hughes Landing Boulevard, The Woodlands 77381. As the second rental facility of kayaks on Lake Woodlands, the Lakes Edge Boat House works in partnership with Riva Row Boat House.

Visit the second kayak rental facility on Lake Woodlands. Lakes Edge Boat House at Hughes Landing is just a short walk from Restaurant Row, Whole Foods and the new boardwalk at Hughes Landing business district.
