Trip Difficulty: Easy (Beginner to Advanced skill levels)
Time for another full moon paddle. This time we will be going to Eagle Creek. We will meet at the boat ramp on Dandy Trail near Rick’s Cafe Boatyard. It costs $5 to use the marina. If you are renting a boat there is free parking between the marina and Rick’s Cafe Boatyard. We will meet at 7pm and try to be on the water at 7:30pm. The “Sturgeon” moon is scheduled to rise about an hour after sunset. We will paddle around until the group wants to return. Since we will have plenty of time we should be able to paddle the entire length the reservoir and maybe up into the creek that feeds it. We may break up into two or more groups to accommodate those who want to return early and those who may want to stay out later
RENTALS: For Kayak or SUP rental reservations with Freedom Kayak Adventures, call[masked]. Single seat boats are $30 and tandem kayaks are $40
Suggested items to bring: Wide brimmed hat, hand sanitizer, sunglasses, large sponge, bilge pump or container to bail out water, water, snacks, towel, change of clothes, water shoes, paddling gloves, rain gear, bug spray, safety whistle, camera, flashlight/headlamp, a sense of adventure, and a good dose of humor. For clothing try to use something other than cotton, especially if the weather is cool. Polypropylene or polyester are good choices since neither holds water and they wick moisture away from you.
* Due to paddling at night, you MUST wear your PFD and you MUST have some form of light on you or your boat for this trip
