Four of the Best Things to do at Falls Lake

There are a lot of things to do at falls lake. Spending a summer at falls lake could be done with no problem! We are going to tell you our favorite three things to do at falls lake!

Before we share our four favorite things to do, we want to share a few honorable mentions. We also love hiking, swimming, boating (non-gasoline powered), and checking out the beaver dams at Falls Lake.

While spending the weekend at Falls Lake, our favorite four things to do at the lake are:

  • Boating: Our pontoon boats are the peak of Falls Lake. Many individuals coming out to Falls Lake to enjoy Falls Lake Recreation will end up renting one of our boats to spend the day on the lake.
  • Jet Skis: One of the best ways to enjoy the water and break up the day on pontoon boats or fishing is to rent a jet ski. Our jet skis are available in half-day or whole day rentals.
  • Fishing: Falls lake is known for its amazing fishing. Having five different types of fish including largemouth bass and two types of catfish puts Falls lake a few steps ahead of any other regular fishing spot. There are also multiple ways to fish at Falls Lake. Renting a motorboat or paddle/ non-gasoline boat are the two most popular ways.
  • Camping: Many of our boat renters want to spend more time on the boats or want one day to enjoy jet skis. For those individuals, we really suggest camping in the Falls Lake Grounds. It’s a great way to enjoy both boats and jet skis.

What You Need To Know To Have An Awesome Party On A Boat

Who is ready for a party on the water? We realize that not everyone is well-versed in the world of boating, and that Motor Boatin’ is often a trial run to lake life for a lot of people, so we wanted to give you some tips for making the most out of a boat party.

4 top tips for hosting a lake party on a boat are:

1. Size matters Make sure to get a boat that will give you and your guests enough space to enjoy the day. Remember that it’s not just people that need space- you’ll have coolers, toys, music player/speakers, towels, sunscreen, food and more.

2. Have some activities planned – So you got your friends together, you set sail….and now what? Think about what you want to do once you’re on the boat and plan accordingly. Are you tubing, swimming, fishing? Make sure you have the gear needed or you might end up sitting on the boat and staring at each other for the day.

3. Always bring food and water – Being outside on the water tends to wear people out, making plenty of food and water a necessity, not just part of your fun. Plan for more than enough water and food for each person, how you’ll serve and eat it all and don’t forget to bring a trash bag or two.

4. Practice good boating safety – Ideally, you want to make sure everyone sailing with you a decent swimmer. Have life jackets readily available and listen to our safety talk. If you have any questions at all about operating a boat or safety on the water, please ask us. We want everyone to have a great time.
