Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you located?

In Nockamixon State Park at 1542 Mountain View Drive Quakertown, PA 18951. Our phone number is 215-538-1340.

What do we need in order to rent a boat?

A government-issued photo ID for use as a deposit, and a form of payment. We accept Visa, Mastercard, and cash. For our pontoon boat, we also require $100 cash or a Visa or Mastercard to hold as a deposit.

Do we need a reservation?

Reservations are recommended for our pontoon boat. All other boats are first-come, first-serve. Our pontoon boat can be reserved one day in advance. We begin taking weekend reservations Friday at 9 am. We do not take reservations for one-hour rentals; the pontoon can only be reserved for 2-4 hours.

Where should we park?

Follow signs in the park for Boat Rental; we have two large lots near our location in the center of the western shore. Parking is free.

I'm bringing a very large group, what do you recommend we do?

It will help you and our staff to discuss your plans with your group ahead of time, and review our boat selection. We do not rent motorized boats to large groups as it poses a safety hazard. Having a head count and a spokesperson is always helpful. Please be aware that while we have a large fleet of boats, weekends and holidays are peak times and demand can be high.

How old must you be to rent a boat?

16 for non-motorized boats, with a valid government-issued ID for use as a deposit. 21 for our electric motor boats, and 25 to rent our pontoon boat. Adults who wish to rent non-motorized boats for their children must leave their ID as a deposit. We will not allow children under 15 on the water without an adult joining them.

Do we need life jackets?

Life jackets are provided at no charge. If you would like to bring your own life jackets that is acceptable, provided they are Coast Guard approved. When using kayaks and paddle boards, you must wear your life preserver at all times in accordance with state law. For other boats, children 12 and under must wear a life preserver at all times, while adults need only have a preserver on board with them. Again these are included in your rental at no charge.

Do children count towards a boat's max occupancy?

Our motor boats and row boats allow you to swap out one adult for two SMALL children (generally around 40 lbs is the cutoff for a "small" child).
Please see our price sheet for details. The rest of our boats have a strict maximum occupancy regardless of age/size, as your safety is our number one priority.

...but do infants count towards a boat's max occupancy?

As all children must wear a Coast Guard approved life preserver at all times, we are not permitted to allow infants aboard our boats if they do not safely fit a CG approved life preserver. We reserve the right to refuse to allow an infant aboard our boats for safety reasons, so we recommend you call ahead with any questions, or prepare to have an adult on shore to stay with the infant. Please note that we do not have infant-sized life vests available.

Are dogs allowed on your boats?

Dogs are welcome aboard our rowboats and 14' electric motor boats only.

Can we swim from your boats?

Swimming is not permitted anywhere in the lake, from our boats or otherwise.

Can we fish from your boats?

Yes, however please be aware you must follow all PA fishing regulations including licensing. See the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission site for more information. We do not sell fishing licenses on site, nor are they available in the park, so please plan accordingly.

Can we launch our boat from your site?

No, please launch your boat from one of the park's many convenient boat launches. A map can be found here.

Is alcohol permitted on your boats?

Alcohol is forbidden in PA state parks, and will not be permitted on our boats. We reserve the right to refuse rentals for visibly intoxicated patrons.

How will we know when our rental is over?

We will give you a return time when you begin your rental; it is your responsibility to have a way to keep track of the time while on the water. A watch or waterproof bag for your phone will be helpful. Other suggestions can be found in our Tips section.
Tips
  • Bring sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat.

  • Bring extra funds in case you decide to stay out on the lake longer.

  • Pack plenty of water and snacks, though there is a bottled drink vending machine on site.

  • Have a way to tell time out on the water.

  • Protect your belongings - bring zip-closing bags for your cell phone, wallet and keys.

  • Dress to get wet especially if you will be renting kayaks or paddle boards. In rowboats, motor boats and peddle boats your feet may become wet.
