Hoover Reservoir is an ideal location for paddle boarding in Central Ohio. Hoover Reservoir is located in Westerville, Ohio and is convenient to all areas of Columbus. Located near Easton Mall, it is only a few minutes off the I-270 expressway.
In 2019 we are offering paddle boarding sessions every weekend from Memorial Day to Labor. You can view the class offerings at Hoover on our Aloha SUP registration site and purchase a season pass there as well.
Aloha SUP offers paddle boarding lessons, rentals, and sup yoga classes at Hoover Reservoir at the Walnut Street Launch at the corner of East Walnut Street and Sunbury Road. Hoover Reservoir Park is managed by the City of Columbus Parks and Recreation Department and 2019 is the sixth season we have partnered with them to offer standup paddle boarding sessions (SUP).
We love Hoover as top location for paddle boarding because of its’ access and limited boat traffic. Boats are limited to a 10 horsepower maximum and a 10 mph maximum making a very safe location for paddle boarding, especially beginners who are learning for the first time. The scenic Hoover Dam Reservoir provides 85% of fresh drinking water to Columbus residents and anchors a park where residents can enjoy multi-purpose trails, frisbee golf, boating, and picnicking in addition the the paddle boarding classes that we offer.
You can view the Hoover Park overview on the City of Columbus Recreation and Parks Department website.
