Paddle craft allowed again on Standley Lake Regional Park starting July 10

Update: Due to rising local and state COVID-19 rates as well as concern for residents’ health and safety, facility and amenity reopenings, including personal paddle craft on Standley Lake, have been put on hold. Learn more. 

Starting Friday, July 10, Standley Lake Regional Park will allow personal paddle craft on the lake. However, rental paddle craft is still prohibited.

All paddle craft utilized on Standley Lake must enter at the main entrance to the park and will be sprayed in accordance with ANS protocols. If paddle craft is brought in on a trailer, the trailer cannot come into contact with the water. All paddle craft must be able to be hand-carried to and from the water.

​Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there are some changes to the program that patrons should be aware of:

  • All paddle craft users must wear a PFD (personal flotation device) at all times while on the water
  • Lake access is restricted to Friday - Monday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. No paddle craft will be allowed on the lake Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.
  • Paddle craft must be off the water by 6 p.m.
  • Spray Station hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. from July 10 to September 30
  • Patrons will be responsible for placing and removing their personal paddle craft from the spray rack and their vehicles. Staff will not physically be in contact with personal paddle craft or equipment.
  • Six feet for social distancing must be maintained in the park and on the water at all times.
  • Patrons must wear a mask at the decontamination station while receiving the required ANS (aquatic nuisance species) spray.
  • Patrons will be required to wear a mask in the park or on the water when social distancing cannot be maintained.
  • Parks staff have the right to limit access to the park and/or lake when full to comply with social distancing recommendations as outlined by the CDC, State and/or Tri-County Health guidelines. 

Daily Paddle Passes are available for $15 (plus $5 for each additional paddle craft). The pass includes single-day park entry and use of one paddle board, canoe, kayak or multi-chambered inflatable raft. Annual paddle craft permits are also for sale for a discounted rate of $100 (50% off).
