Upcoming Events:

Sea Kayak Lake Nighthorse

Friday, June 21 Lake Nighthorse 8:00 am

Please bring your own sea kayak. This is not a clinic; paddlers should have the skills to paddle safely. We will park in the main boat launch parking area and meet at the small sandy beach. Paddlers should be ready to paddle at 8:00 a.m. We plan to finish about 11:00 a.m.
Paddlers must have a Lake Nighthorse pass or pay at the entrance station. PFDs and a whistle or other audio signaling device are required by state law for each kayak. Each kayak must also have the name, address, and phone number of the paddler affixed to the kayak (I use a laminated name tag attached with a zip tie).
No limit. No dogs.
