Kayak the Warroad River

Traverse the tranquil waters of the Warroad River on your kayak or rent your mode of transportation from Doc’s Harbor Inn. Doc’s rents paddleboats and boards, canoes, and kayaks to meet your needs.

Wind around lily pads, lilies, and cattails. Stop at the beach on the island or paddle to the Point. Watch the ducks, swans, and turtles as you zigzag your way upriver.

Bike the Warroad Trail

The biking paths around the Warroad Point Park are ideal for family biking. The wide, paved trails that wind around the lagoons next to Lake of the Woods provide plenty of space for training wheels, bike trailers, and even tandem bikes. Choose a short loop of a few miles, or go the distance – about 7 miles out to the Warroad Estates and back.

There are even a few spaces to dock your boat or park your ATV or snowmobile right next to the brewery.”
