North Dakota is beautiful! Much of this beauty is in our natural resources -- including our rivers and lakes and their natural state-of-being.
Paddle On is a local Bismarck / Mandan business renting stand-up paddle boards (SUP), canoes and kayaks. We offer a way to experience the beauty of North Dakota's waterways in a way that leaves a very light environmental footprint -- kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding (SUPs), and canoeing.
Day-long floats, overnight trips, or even just an hour or two on the local Bismarck/Mandan waters. We have SUP rentals, kayak rentals (singles and tandems), canoe rentals as well as delivery (limited).
We invite you to explore and experience the serenity and unmatched beauty of many miles of the Missouri River, small rivers, and lakes. With all the water resources available in North Dakota, many of which are within a few minutes' drive, it is something everyone should try!
It is official! Paddle On has a permanent (seasonal) rental site at Harmon Lake. Harmon Lake is a beautiful recreation area eight miles north of Mandan on Highway 1806. It has much to offer and we are excited to be a part of it. Awesome camping available, plenty of wildlife and fishing, a great biking trail, and perfect paddling opportunities.view map
The Heart River west of Mandan is a beautiful trip through scenic countryside and river valleys. There are a few different ideal spots to start and end your floats.view map of Heart River
