Recreational Membership


If you are looking for a fun way to enjoy Lake Lanier, LCKC’s Recreational Membership is a great deal, with 4 plans to choose from.

Our Adult Recreation Group Paddles meet twice per week and are guided by our Recreational Coordinator in a safety boat. At $60 per month you can use our boats and gear with no experience necessary.

If you have your own kayak and gear, this membership is only $40 per month.

Want to paddle more on your own? Then our Adult and Family Recreational Memberships allow just that; time to chill on your time! Individual Memberships run $200 per year and Family (up to 4 in the same household) is just $320 annually.

You will benefit from:

  • Access to our recreational boats during open hours along with usage of our paddles and life jackets
  • Moonlight paddles at no additional cost, which is led by a professional coach to ensure safety
  • Discounts on summer day camp
  • And, if you have your own kayak, canoe, or SUP, you can store it in the LCKC boathouse for an additional $120 per year. 

Youth Recreational Program

LCKC’s Youth Recreational Program offers children ages 9-17 a way to enjoy paddling in a non-competitive format. Participants use recreational canoes and kayaks up to the club’s Nelo Viper touring boats. They also have other scheduled events beyond the Monday and Friday late afternoon paddling outings. Fees are $80 monthly.

Homeschool Recreational Program

Our Homeschool Recreational Program offers those in homeschool a mid-day break on Mondays to enjoy time on the water in a non-competitive environment. Similar in format and boat usage as the Youth Recreational, homeschool will also have additional events beyond the paddle outings.

Fees for the Homeschool Rec program are only $60 per month.
