Recreation ~ Boating
Hawk is surrounded on three sides by the lush Green Mountains that bestow natural privacy upon its distinctive location. However, on the southern end of the Resort lies one of the purest and most serene lakes in all of Vermont. The northernmost of four finger lakes in the valley region between Okemo and Killington, where Hawk makes its home, Lake Amherst is characterized by calm, cool waters and warm summer winds that make it an ideal place for boating.
The serpentine Black River also eventually feeds into Lake Amherst after circuitously forging its path throughout the Resort property, and delving deep into hidden areas of Hawk's 70-acre Nature Preserve. Taking advantage of these exceptional elements of the Hawk ecosystem, the Marina offers residents and guests the unique opportunity to explore both the open waters of the lake and the winding waters of the Black River.
Whatever floats without a motor (they are strongly discouraged on the lake, both to preserve the environment and ensure safe recreational boating), we probably have it at Hawk Marina.
Enjoy a family race with our surf bikes.
Paddle along the shores of Lake Amherst in either a kayak or canoe, and then head up the Black River to explore the shallow waters of the Preserve.
Climb into a pedal boat with a companion and explore the waterways together.
Jump, slide and have fun on our "Rave" water trampoline.
With more than 25 watercraft available for residents, guests and the public-at-large, Hawk Marina is sure to have something for everyone who yearns to discover our peaceful mountain setting with an invigorating day on the lake.
The Hawk Marina is located on the northern tip of Lake Amherst on Scout Camp Road, just off of Route 100 and is open each day in season from 8:00 a.m. to sundown.
