Squamish offers many kayaking opportunities.  Whatever your experience level there is a water way that will work for you.   Experience the rush of river kayaking, or the calm of lake or sea.  Paradise Valley Campground, being situated along the Cheakamus River, is in a convenient location to jump start your kayaking excursion.  For guests with experience and their own equipment, the Cheakamus River is considered a short, but fast rush water run from the Upper Cheakamus, or for longer runs the Ashlu is a popular option.  For the beginner or more moderate experience, Alice Lake and Brohm Lake are quick jaunts from the campground by car.  If you are interested in sea going kayaking Squamish downtown (beside the federal government marina) has a launching area.  To rent equipment, there are different options.  Squamish Tourism is always willing to provide contact information for the different operators.
