About the Floats

  • All canoe floats are ranger-led. Rangers are all certified interpretive guides and canoe instructor certified. Paddles, life jackets and canoes are provided. 
  • Floats are approximately 1-2 hours in length and held three to four times a week, but no more than four.
  • Most floats are at sunrise and sunset hours due to heat and increased wildlife viewing opportunities for visitors on the floats. Rangers leading the float will stop periodically to view wildlife, discuss the history of the lake and/or to discuss land acquisition projects occurring with Friends of Radnor Lake. 
  • Canoe Floats are not offered between Labor Day and Memorial Day due to waterfowl migration and/or impact upon wildlife observation. 
  • We are sorry, but we don't have waiting lists for the floats, and no exceptions can be made to float capacities.

No private boats or rentals are allowed at Radnor Lake.
