Moffitt Beach Camping/Kayaking Weekend
June 10-12, 2016





This is our first camping/kayaking weekend of the 2016 paddling season. Our main paddle will be on Saturday, but for those interested, we will also be paddling on Friday and Sunday.  If you do not wish to camp, you are still welcome to join us for the paddle on Saturday.  Launch time for the Saturday paddle will be posted at a later date.

If you are interested in camping, you will need to make your own campsite reservations through Reserve America Online.  We will be in loop A which is campsites 215-260.  Moffitt Beach is open for reservation now.  Kim is on site 236. You are welcome to camp anywhere you want, but it's nice if we can all be in the same area.

Schedule


Friday Earlybird Paddle - Friday we expect to paddle on the Jessup River. Low water prevented us from paddling this last fall, so we will try it in the spring. We expect to launch by noon, allowing time for people to set up their tents. 

 
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 on the Hunter's site 239.  Please post what you are bringing on the message board. 

Saturday Group Paddle - Saturday we will leave from the campground 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. 

The paddle will be on the Kunjamuk River.

Saturday Group Dinner - Dinner will be on Kim & Kathy's site 236.  Don't forget to list your dish on the message board.

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