Outings Under $20 in Northwest Arkansas: Sunset kayak tours on Beaver Lake

Family Outings in NWA 2017

Hobbs State Park is hosting sunset kayak tours this summer. Some are FREE, but the other events are under $20.

More info about the free events can be found here (sunset kayak tour on July 24th) and here (morning kayak tour on July 31).

For the kayak tours that have a cost, one kid and a parent can enjoy this activity for $18 total. You could consider it a parent-child date night activity. Of course, you don’t have to limit it to one kid, but we’re trying to keep these outing suggestions under $20.

The tours will be held on Beaver Lake and you can paddle your own kayak guided by a park interpreter.  You’ll learn the basics of paddling while exploring a calm area of the lake. The finale will be gazing west into the sunset. Recreational kayaks, paddles and life jackets will be provided.

KayakHobbs officials request that you bring a bottle of water, bug spray, a flashlight, and be sure to dress for the weather.

Where:  Begin at Hobbs State Park – Conservation Area visitor center on Hwy 12 just east of the War Eagle Road/Hwy 12 intersection.
