At Laurel Hill, Hazelbaker’s offers canoe, kayak, stand-up paddle boards, and paddle boat rentals to take on their lake. Hazelbaker’s also has a second location which is at the Nearby Ohiopyle State Park where you can take a guided canoe or kayak float tour down the class 1 rapids. There are several open-to-the-public lakes nearby for leisurely paddling and/or fishing. The closest lake to Claycomb Chalets is the Acme Dam Lake about 5 miles away.
