WATCH – What reservations look like

The ORP is excited to announce that we will be taking reservations and renting canoes, kayaks, and stand-up paddle boards via curbside pick-up beginning June 15th. We will be taking reservation requests using our Equipment Request Form which will be available soon. We will not be taking walk-up rentals at this time so please plan accordingly. Completing the request form does not confirm your reservation, please allow us time to process your request and ensure that the equipment is safe to use. We will contact you promptly during business hours to confirm your order and schedule your pick-up, thank you in advance for your patience.

Contact us at 515.294.8200 or email isuorp@gmail.com.
