Big Muddy Adventures Opens Boat Rental Operation at Lake Simpson

Big Muddy Adventures (BMA) is thrilled to announce the opening of a boat rental operation in Simpson Lake, located at 1234 Marshall Road in Valley Park, MO. Starting this weekend, the public will be able to rent kayaks, canoes and stand-up paddleboards (SUPs) at the 72-acre lake, located in Simpson Park.

“Simpson Lake is an untapped, yet integral part of the St. Louis boating scene. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to help more people explore this natural beauty located right in the heart of St. Louis County,” said BMA Owner Roo Yawitz.

This isn’t the first foray into the rental business for Big Muddy Adventures. BMA has been the exclusive rental operator at the Boathouse in Forest Park since 2018. Since then, Big Muddy Adventures at the Boathouse has replaced and updated the boat rental fleet, introduced bike rentals and hosted many special events and teaching classes including SUP Yoga, Moonlight Picnics and Floating Movies.

Big Muddy Adventures at Simpson Lake will initially offer boat rentals, but plans to add bikes, as well as a full schedule of special events and instructional classes in the near future. “Not only is Simpson Lake a great place to paddle, it’s also a great place to fish, picnic and play. The park’s network of trails and amenities, as well as its proximity to the Meramec River and the Meramec River Greenway, provide many opportunities for people to get out and move, whether on foot, bike or boat. said Yawitz.

Big Muddy Adventures at Simpson Lake will be open Friday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Full details, as well as rental options and rates, are available online.
