When calling to make a reservation for the free Kayak and Stand-Up Paddleboard programs, please be patient - our reservation line is staffed by volunteers who generously donate their free time to assist you. If your call goes to voice mail during reservation hours, our volunteer is most likely on the other line assisting another customer. Please do not leave a message, but continue trying to call. We thank you for your patience and understanding!
If you are interested in helping us assist other Kayak and SUP program participants like yourself make reservations, and can reliably donate four hours of your day (9:00 AM - 1:00 PM), please contact Ranger Breanna Corp at (530) 242-3451. We currently are looking for Reservation Line Volunteers on Mondays and Fridays.
General Kayak Information: Reservations are required and can be made up to two weeks in advance of a tour date by calling (530) 242-3462. Volunteers are usually available to take your call from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Monday through Friday. Reservation can only be made by talking directly to a kayak volunteer. However, due to the popularity of the kayak programs, you may not always be able to get through and unfortunately left messages will not secure a spot on a kayak tour. Please keep trying or call back at a less busy time. Your patience towards the park volunteers is greatly appreciated. Click here for rules and requirements.
