    You might call Max Finch at Alaska Canoe & Campground http://www.alaskacanoetrips.com/
    Max has several Rafts for rent from 13' to 16', he rents them with oars and frames, he'll also provide shuttle service.

    I hope this helps

    Good Boating

    Thumbs up great trip

    If you put in at kenai lake outlet, and down to skilak, you will have a full day. I enjoy camping along the shore line of Skilak to the right after you come out of the river.
    The paddle accross skilak is about 5 miles, and although I have done it a few times, I enjoy a small outboard motor to push me along.
    The lake is generally more quiet from wind in the Mornings, ( before 11 am)
    so crossing the lake before noon is recomended.
    Let me know if I can help.
    I did this trip in August of 2006 and had a great time.

    When you come to a fork in the trail, take it!

    Default Thanks

    Thanks you I will contact them, and for those who don't know the Alaskan Series boats are by far the best inflatable boats made. I plan on owning another one as soon as I can.
    The trip down the Kenai could not be any better, there is a Public Use Forest Service (I think FS) rental cabin to the left on entering Skilak Lake also. I can't wait to do it again after 15 years. I do have a small kicker that will make the trip to the campground easy enough.
    For people who have never or plan on being on Skilak, it can be a very dangerious lake, don't take a chance if the weathers bad.

    Thanks again
