We have enjoyed paddling Pinantan Lake, but we really like paddling up a narrow channel to the hidden upper lake.
The entrance to the lagoon channel is at the east end of the lake. It can be paddled in a canoe or kayak, but there is a dam-like blockage partway through that requires getting out of the boat and pulling it over the obstacle.
There is no road access to the upper lake and it surrounded by swamp and meadows, a peaceful spot that is inaccessible to most other people. We saw only loons and ducks on the lake on this last paddle.
Launching from the community park, we did the shoreline of both lakes, a 6km morning paddle. The main body of Pinantan allows only electric motors so it is less busy and much less noisy than other area lakes.
