Santa Fe Lake (SFL) is home to the fast growing Paddle Sports-- Kayaking and Paddle Boarding!  SFL has beautiful sights and calm lake waters well suited for paddling.  Expect to see turtles and water fowl aplenty.  Where larger lakes can be hard to paddle because of their size, SFL has the 'medium' size feel that allows for a non-exhausting adventure but certainly enough to explore time and time again! We do ask you to respect private property boundaries clearly marked up the river and in some of the coves.


At Santa Fe Lake, we are advocates of educating our paddlers to be safe and follow the rules and regulations of the USCG when paddling both kayaks and paddleboards.

Some of the most important laws are for your safety!

  • Lifejackets are required for all paddlers

  • Kayaks & Paddleboards are NOT allowed in a designated swim area

  • Lanterns/Flashlights are to be carried between sunset and sunrise 

Please follow this link to learn more.

Kayak and Paddleboard Rentals 

are available through Flatwater Fitness & Fun. For questions or for reserving times contact them directly at
