EKAL Lake Activity Center Crew is at Your Service!

EKALIt’s mid-summer, and the Lakes Region of New Hampshire is hopping with people taking advantage of all this region has to offer, especially the water! From swimming and paddling, to sailing, speed boating, and cruising, there is something for everyone here. Some of the best ways to explore the lakes are those that keep you close to the water, and the folks at EKAL Activity Center are ready to help you get out and enjoy it to the fullest!

The EKAL Lake Activity Center at Mill Falls is a full service activity center offering everything you need to have a good time out on the water. The Center is part retail shop and part learning center, providing visitors with rentals of kayaks, canoes, stand-up paddleboards (SUP), and aqua cycles, as well as lessons in how to best use the equipment. The center also offers guided boat tours, and chartered cruises on a 26-foot pontoon boat. In addition, adventurous souls can take SUP yoga or fitness classes out on the open water!

The staff at EKAL is a tight-knit crew of individuals who are passionate about lake life, each in their own way. They also love helping others have a great time on Lake Winnipesaukee, and are at your service as you explore the all the fun possibilities. In the spirit of getting to know these special people a little better, we’ve asked this summer’s crew a few questions about who they are and what they love about the Lake. Perhaps their replies will inspire you to find a few new adventures…
