This staple establishment has been serving Stow Lake and Golden Gate Park for quite some time and renting a boat there is still as simple as ever. Stow Lake Boathouse rentals are great for a couple of people to enjoy together, and once there you just check in at the boathouse and take your vessel of choice out into the water. Enjoy the movement of the lake waves, observe the resident wildlife in their habitat, and make your way around Stow Lake.

The boathouse has recently been remodeled and restocked. You can find rowboats, electric boats, and pedal boats for up to four people, with rentals based on an hourly rate. If you want to eat while on the water, bring a picnic.

Stow Lake Boathouse is usually open every day but you should always call first because sometimes there are closures.┬áThe boats are appropriate for all ages, as long as younger people have an adult present. Don’t forget cash because they don’t accept cards for payment.
