September 15 - 17, 2017
|Note: Last year some
participants camped on the side of the lake near
the showers (Campsites 101 -121). These
campsites are on Lewey Lake. Some people
opted to camp on the other shower side
(Campsites 138-161). These campsites are either
near or on the water accessible to Lewey
Lake. So it’s up to you to pick a
campsite. If you are interested in
camping, you will need to make your own campsite
reservations through Reserve America Online.
When you reserved a site, PLEASE post on the
message board the number of the site that you
will be on. We may be spread out, so it
would be helpful to know where people are.
2017 Lewey Lake Update
We plan to paddle the Jessup River to Indian Lake, the Cedar River Flow and Mason Lake. The day and time will be decided when we get there and check the REAL weather. We will wait for those coming on Thursday – at least until 1:00 PM. Let us know on the message board if you think you will be much later than that. Saturday’s breakfast will be at Jim and Mickey’s (see message board for site number). Saturday’s supper will be in the pavilion.

Saturday Group Paddle:
Saturday we will leave from Lewey Lake
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 location

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.

dish on the message board.
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
you may take the Verona (Turning Stone) Exit
33. Follow Rt 365 East until the end, then
turn left on Rt 8 north. Alternately you can
take the Utica exit and follow signs for Rts 8
and 12 until they split, then follow Rt 8 north
to Speculator. Take a left hand turn in
Speculator onto Rt 30. Campground is 12
miles north on Route 30 from Speculator on the
left side of the road.
