Department of Sports Facilities and Campus Recreation

Outdoor Endeavors has a unique partnership with the City of St. Cloud, St. Cloud Parks Department and St. Cloud Rotary Club to operate boat rentals and instructional programs at Eastman Park's Lake George Boathouse.

The community can rent paddleboats, stand up paddleboards and canoes.

We also host canoeing and stand up paddleboarding istructional programs at the lake as part of the St. Cloud State University's Center for Paddlesports Instruction, Education and Safety.
