On-site, guests may enjoy kayaking, canoeing, and paddleboarding, or fishing from along the beach. Plan to enjoy (in groups of 10 or less): Nature hikes, campfires, and outdoor games (Chanco is unable to provide any recreational equipment, but our basketball court, gaga ball pit, 9-square-in-the-air, and volleyball court are available for use, so feel free to bring your own ball and utilize those spaces!). If you would like to bring your own self-propelled boat, you are welcome to do so, to use during your designated boating times. Please keep in mind that Chanco does not have vehicle access to the waterfront so you would need to be comfortable walking your boat down to the river.
