Lake Claire Recreation Area

Curious about canoeing? Pumped to go paddleboarding? Look no further than the Lake Claire Recreation Area. Located at the north end of Greek Park Drive, Lake Claire gives students the opportunity to explore nature by kayak, play sand volleyball or have a cookout with friends. Best of all, it’s free!

The amenities at Lake Claire enable students to achieve healthy lifestyle goals while being immersed in the beautiful environment that surrounds campus. Three lakeside pavilions provide students with outdoor areas to meet, socialize and break free from the normal rigors of the classroom.

Seven days a week during most of the year, students can reserve and check out a variety of equipment like kayaks, canoes, paddleboards and tailgate games at no cost. Want to show off your cooking skills? Go for it. Grilling spaces are available, too. With serene and natural landscapes full of native flora and fauna, the only thing missing from the Lake Claire Recreation Area is you!
