Launch Time 12:00 Noon

Bridgeport, NY

Trip Canceled

Cicero (WSYR-TV) Onondaga County has announced the dates it will conduct ground spraying for mosquitoes in the Cicero Swamp area.  They plan on spraying on Saturday and Sunday depending on  the weather.  The spraying for mosquitoes this weekend looks very close to where we are paddling Sunday.  Therefore, the trip is being cancelled.

We will be paddling on Chittenango Creek from Bridgeport to Oneida Lake. Because of swift water on part of the trip, we will need to shuttle cars before we start the paddle. The take-out is at the Fisher Bay Restaurant on Oneida Lake which will also serve as the location of our after paddle renewal of energy.  Also, be sure that you are properly dressed for the paddle and have all appropriate equipment.

We will be launching from the Sheldon Memorial Park in Bridgeport. Launch time is 12:00 noon.

Directions To The Launch Site: Take Route 81 North from Syracuse to the Route 31 exit. Drive east on Route 31 to Bridgeport. Just before the Route 31/Route 298 junction in Bridgeport you will see a Fast Trac gas station on the left and a Kinney Drug store on the right. Sheldon Park is across the road from the Kinney Drug store behind a car wash.

Please Note: Directions for each trip are provided to help people unfamiliar with the area to find the location of the trip. They are not meant to necessarily be the most direct route from your own location.
