Where Your Paddling Adventure Begins

Hopkinton State Park is your place to escape the everyday bustle for the fun of a relaxing paddle. Paddle a kayak or canoe around on your own to explore this beautiful area. Our experienced staff on the docks love everything there is about boating and is ready to get you started on your personal water adventure.

Hopkinton State Park boasts more than 1,500 acres of natural forest and open fields. But what you come for most is Hopkinton Reservoir, a 175-acre spring-fed lake that features 3 islands, 2 swimming beaches, miles of trails, stunning vistas, and 1 totally awesome boathouse! There are also over 15 locations for trail riding, rock climbing, mountain biking, and hiking.

Don’t forget to bring a friend for a kayaking or paddleboard lesson, or just stop by for a fun paddle after work!


At Hopkinton State Park, it’s easy for you to get out on the water with rentals, classes camps and more.
