Let’s do the "Sunset Paddle" at Proud Lake Recreation Area again! The event is hosted by Heavner's Canoe Rental .
The plan is following:
Let’s meet in the parking lot at the Heavner’s Proud Lake Canoe Rental (2775 Garden Road, Milford, Michigan 48381) at 5:15 PM. With the sun setting earlier and earlier we need time to unload and get on the water no later than 5:45 PM.
If you do not own your own kayak or canoe you can rent it there. Canoe or kayak rental is $25 per person. For those bringing your own boat and wish to stay for the bonfire, the fee is $5. If you need to rent a boat, you MUST contact Heavner's directly [masked]) to arrange a rental. Please be advised there are other Meetup groups attending, so make your reservations ASAP. The paddle lasts approximately 2 to 2.5 hrs hours. We paddle to Milford and back. We will walk into Milford for dinner (a 1/4 mile walk). The return paddle lasts approximately 1.5 hours.
Heavner's will provide a shuttle from Milford for anyone who does not want to paddle back (free for renters, $5 for boat owners)
After the paddle there will be a bonfire.
A valid State Recreation Passport is required to enter the park.
It would also be a good idea to bring a change of clothes in case you get wet.
Because we will be paddling for some time after sunset, a flashlight or headlamp is strongly advised, but not required.
Please check the page before the event for updates and if the event is still on as it could be canceled by Heavner’s in case of adverse weather conditions.
