This is for advanced kayakers and kayak campers. Must have a long boat. Must be able to paddle 8 miles with a loaded boat in open water - be able to navigate long stretches of open water, handle rough water conditions (wind/waves), have skirt, paddle float, bilge pump, and be able to do assisted and self-rescues. Must have done either kayak camping or backpack camping before. Participants are accepted at the sole discretion of the Host.
Paddle out into the lake and camp at one of the primitive camp sites. Right now, thinking of staying with the Beginner group Friday night, paddling to Graveyard Island for lunch on Sat, then on the First Island for camping. Near reverse of that on Sunday back to the ramp. But am flexible, and depends on getting the permits. See http://cdm16021.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/ref/collection/p16021coll11/id/30 for a list of all the camp sites.
Picture below is the about 270 degree view from Graveyard Island.
