This kayak is very stable and cruises right along! I can't think of anything negative to say about it. I am thrilled to own an Old Town kayak. Quality is king, and Old Town is worthy.

I tooled around the edge of a half frozen lake as my first test run, and the Camden performed extremely well. I love how easy it is to keep a steady pace once I reach my desired speed. It coasts for a long time when I stop paddling, which is pretty satisfying!

Tons of storage, probably enough for a dome tent in the bow between your feet for overnight trips.Mine is the angler edition so the rod holders and anchor pulley are awesome, though I haven't actually tested them out just yet. All hail Old Town! :)

Designed for any size beginner but built with features you won't outgrow as your skills progress, the 12 ft. 6 in. Old Town Camden 120 Kayak is easy to paddle and outfitted for fun.


Close to shore at the ocean or far out on a lake, the Old Town Camden 120 Kayak handles like a dream. Once you captain this luxury vessel with its array of high-end features and forgiving hull shape, you know why. The three-layer polyethylene is durable and resists warping, and the hull length and design works for first-timers and intermediate paddlers. The ACS seating system, which includes adjustable backrest height, thigh support, lumber support, and backrest angle, allows you to achieve the perfect fit. Your tush is even happy in this kayak, because seat material feels soft, drains water quickly, and uses a channeled texture that improves airflow between the seat and your butt and back. And the Cockpit Support Track footbrace system uses padded pedals (great for bare feet), and the pedals can be adjusted along a track to accommodate a wide range of leg lengths, so you can further dial in your fit or let your in-laws use it without them barking about it not fitting. While on the water, all of your luxury gear and the essentials stay dry in the stern, because the Click Seal hatch cover has a unique gasket that forms a tight seal. Rigid hatch covers hinge open and closed and lock down with the simple flip of a switch located on the top of the cover. Bungee-cord paddle keepers give you secure storage for your paddle so you can go hands-free when you need to.
