Lewey Lake
Camping/Kayaking Weekend
September 19-21, 2014

Indian Lake

Note: Last year some participants camped on the side of the lake near the showers (Campsites 138-161).  These campsites are either near or on the water accessible to Lewey Lake.  Some people opted to camp on the non-shower side of the lake (Campsites 101 -121).  So its up to you to pick a campsite.   Also, some campers may be going up on Thursday.  If you are interested in camping, you will need to make your own campsite reservations through Reserve America Online.


Friday Earlybird Paddle
 - Friday's paddle will be on the Jessup River. We expect to launch by noon, allowing time for people to set up their tents.  If you are not camping with us and wish to paddle with the club, please be at the campground by 11 AM. Check the message board for CNY kayaker sites.
Friday Dinner - Some people will meet to go out to dinner on Friday at the Speculator Inn and others will opt to eat at the campground.

Saturday Group Breakfast - 
Breakfast will be at Jim and Mickey's site 87.  Please post what you are bringing on the message board.  

Saturday Group Paddle 
 - Saturday we are planning to launch into or near Elm Lake, then paddle the upper Kunjamuk River.  We will check out that launch we saw from the Lake in the spring of this year and see how many cars it can hold.   We will leave about a half hour after breakfast cleanup.  If you are not camping with us and wish to paddle with the club, please be at the campground by 10 AM.

Saturday Group Dinner
 - The group dinner will be in the recreation room, if free that evening.  If the weather is nice, we could also gather outside the recreation room.  Stay tuned and don't forget to list your dish on the message board.

Sunday and Monday - You are on your own for activities on these dates.

If you have already reserved a site, please post on the message board the number of the site that you will be on.  We may be spread out this year, so it would be helpful to know where people are.

Note:  You are on your own for any other meals.

Experience Level: September can be cool and breezy. If you are going to paddle Indian Lake, you must feel comfortable on open water with 1-2 feet swells and paddling 10-12 miles.  Other easier paddles may be available. Be sure that you are properly dressed for the paddle and have all appropriate equipment. A spray skirt would be helpful.

Directions: From New York State Thruway (I-90), Exit 27 at Amsterdam; north on Route 30 through the villages of Wells, and Speculator. Campground is 12 miles north on Route 30 from Speculator on the left side of the road.

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
