Where's a great place to kayak around Mnpls area?

Hi I am going to Mnpls area ( Rosemont to be exact) to visit my bud. I am an avid paddler, is there a cool lake with nice scenery that I could kayak for hours? Your input is greatly appreciated.

There are several places if you come into the Twin Cities-like Lake Calhoun, Lake of the Isles and I especailly like Hidden Falls Park along the Mississippi River. Another nice scenic place is Lake Pepin. Here is the website

Minnehaha Creek is great for canoing, I would think the same for kayaking. I have seen them there. It's especially fun when the water is high, although it may involve a little more portaging.

Here is also the DNR's link for kayaking in the state parks.

Best of luck, looks to be a warm summer so far.
