SOKO Outfitters Rents Kayaks and Paddle Boards on Cedar Lake

SOKO Outfitters, a locally owned specialty outdoor store in Cedar Rapids, will offer kayak and stand up paddle board (SUP) rentals this summer.

SOKO will have a rental location on Cedar Lake next to the Sag Wagon. It will be open Friday-Sunday on fair weather days from Memorial Day through Labor Day weekend. Customers also can rent boats from the SOKO store starting on May 5. 

Weekend rentals at Cedar Lake will be available by the hour. All paddlers are required to wear personal flotation devices, which are included in the $15 per hour price. Customers also can rent equipment at the store Monday-Thursday and use their own transportation.

"Cedar Lake is an untapped asset in our community," said SOKO Outfitters co-owner Steve Shriver. "It is an easy launch with no current, so it's a great place for beginners to learn. We are thrilled to offer a form of recreation that hasn't been easily accessible or family friendly in this area until now."

SOKO, 41 16th Ave. SW, Cedar Rapids, IA 52404
