Lake Wilgreen

Rating: Beginner, Small Lake, Any Distance, Leisurely Pace

I am out.of.shape! I need smaller trips to build up my body to do some of the longer trips. It seems that our club includes many different levels of kayakers and I am willing to bet that I am not the only one who would enjoy the smaller trips to have fun and build stamina. This is my first post so bear with any mistakes that I make. I am going to pick a bunch of smaller calmer lakes to play in and if you would like to join me, that would be awesome! My first choice is one you may not have heard of: Lake Wilgreen. It is a small interesting little privately owned lake with a store and out buildings (yay!). Putting in will cost you $5.00 per carload.  I have learned that it is possible to see beavers, otter, muskrat, and turtles.
Here is a link that has directions: http://www.wilgreenlakemarina.com/ I will arrive at 3:00 and I can return to the main dock easily to meet others if you need to arrive later. Just give me a heads up here. I spotted some heron last Summer so I think this could be a sweet and fun adventure. At least we can get onto the water! My cell phone is[masked]
According to my weather app, the weather should be nice on that day. If it changes, I will reschedule.

    Wilgreen was cool -- small, calm, and easy to find. I'll definitely go back.

    Sounds like fun. Too early for me though, on a a workday.

      What time would you be able to get there? We could do a another trip later in the week, Thursday or Friday. Weather looks perfect.

    I checked the weather and it appears that the storms will be past us by the afternoon. I am going to put in at the lake at 3pm. I will return to the ramp at 4:30 to check to see if others want to join. Leave a note here if you want me to meet you at that time please.

    How long will you all be on the water? I'm not sure I can skip out of work that early to be there at 3.

      Diane, I ask only because I do frequently drop in at the Ky river at Boonesboro. I want to do this 2-3 times per week, as time is available. It's a good way to burn calories. I'm out on Richmond Rd....if you want to join me, you're welcome.

    I would love to join you but have volunteer duty on Tues. If you end up going on Wed, Thurs or Fri. let me know.

    I don't mind changing the time to say 4:30 if this is good for everyone else. I do note that thunderstorms might happen that day so if on Monday it appears a probability, would anybody mind rescheduling for Wednesday?

    • Diane

      Sorry. I got the host wrong! I'm good with Wed too. 430 would be great for me but how does everyone else feel?

    Sure...I'll go (weather permitting). I just started last year. This year, I've only hit the KY River at Boonesboro a few times. I've been wanting to go to Wilgree anyway, so now I have an excuse.
