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
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.
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.

people will meet to go out to dinner on Friday
at the Speculator Inn and others will opt
to eat at the campground.
Breakfast will be on the Hunter's site
