No reservations are taken at Lakes Edge due to availability of inventory, but you can reserve a kayak at Riva Row Boat House. 

At Riva Row, during normal operations hours, reservations for kayaks are not required. But reservations can be made for larger groups. Those wishing to reserve seven (7) or more kayaks (single, tandem, or combination) can call ahead to make a reservation at 281-210-3965. Reservations must be made at least 24 hours in advance and full advance payment is required. Group discounts in the amount of $5 off per boat are available for these reservations.

  • Reservations are offered on a first-come, first-served basis, and staff may be unable to take another reservation once the allotment on a given day is full.
  • Maximum reservation on a normal operating weekday is 12 kayaks of any combination of sizes, so that we can maintain an operating inventory. Reservations are available for standard kayaks only due to limited inventory of all other boats.
