Welcome everyone:) The lagoons offers a nice paddle whether we are able to go out on to the lake or not-- there are channels of marina and a sheltered beach access. Going out the channel onto the lake, there are accessible beaches for about 1 1/2 miles. For evening hours I would prepare with lights and a spray skirt in the event the group decides to lake it. I enjoy this paddle site as I can get the exercise and see the birds, fish and turtle without going on the lake when there is wind.
Mentor Lagoons also offers a great trail way accessible by bike or hike.. I would be open to meeting early for that most months. I will have maps of water and trail.
You will want to park to the right when you arrive, there is a sign showing water trailhead. I will look into the lagoons plans to offer rentals and post hours if they keep them, this has been variable in the past. There is a regular restroom in parking lot and available outhouse at portage near beach.
Looking forward to some enjoyable paddles this summer:)
