Hear From Our Many Happy Customers

We rented a pontoon from Park Rapids Boat Rental for our family vacation in early June 2022. They have a website to book on but we also called them with questions. The website was helpful to get an idea of the different boats available and Sadie did a great job explaining the advantages of each boat. We worked with Jason for our delivery and pick up. He was flexible and on time. The boat was in great condition and we had no troubles with it. We were very happy with each step of the process and would highly recommend contacting them for a rental.

Shari Becker

This was the best rental experience ever! Jason was thoughtful, accommodating, made things easy and fun, went above and beyond to make our adventure awesome. Excellent experience, highly recommend!

Ursula Hegvik

Our group of guys recently rented a pontoon and absolutely loved it. The drop off and pick up service was very much appreciated. I highly recommend this place.

Tirzah Wedewer

I booked a large pontoon with PRBR back in May. I selected this business because their prices were much better than the rental places in Walker and they included delivery. Sadie was great to work with. She told us we could get a large discount if we rented one more day so took that deal.
Jason dropped off the pontoon at a public landing and explained how everything worked. The pontoon was very well appointed and in excellent condition. Everything worked great for the nine days we used it.
I mistakenly thought we had the pontoon one more day so I didn’t make arrangements to drop it off on the right day. Sadie and Jason were very forgiving and didn’t make me feel guilty. I will definitely be renting from them again next year.


Park Rapids Boat Rental was really GREAT to work with! Sadie was so kind, polite, professional, and fast in responding – it was a pleasure to work with her to set up the rental, to change aspects of our reservation, and to know what to expect about the drop off and pick up. Jason delivered and picked up the boat – he was on time (early in fact), very nice, thorough in giving us instructions, and explaining the signatures needed to rent the boat. Both Sadie and Jason were prompt in responding to my texts and calls, and it was an absolute pleasure to work with them! I will absolutely will rent a boat from Park Rapids Boat Rental again!

Dean Goldberg

Jason and crew were so responsive and polite. We will definitely be renting from this team again!

Blake Daley

I will rent a pontoon from Park Rapids boat rental the next time I am in Park Rapids. Communication was easy, booking was a piece of cake, and the drop off/pick up was on time. The pontoon I rented was very clean and worked perfectly. I thank them for their service.
