Important Notice: REI’s Meydenbauer Bay Park Boathouse operations are currently limited due to a swim beach closure and some rental gear may be unavailable.
Boats will continue to be rented at this location, but for stand up paddle boards please visit us at our Enatai Beach Park boathouse for our full rental assortment.
REI’s Boathouse in Meydenbauer Bay Park is at the heart of Bellevue. Close to downtown, the park offers wooded pathways, open lawns, and views of the surrounding lake and greenery from the shoreline and the pedestrian pier. Launch your boat from Meydenbauer and practice your paddle skills in the enclosed bay. Rent a kayak, canoe, or stand-up paddleboard from the REI boathouse and take a break from the stress of daily life right in the heart of Bellevue.
Closed for the rest of 2022—see you next summer! We’ll be back in 2023 for all your boathouse needs!
