Kayaking on Round Lake


Join us for a paddle on Round Lake.  Round Lake is noted for it's Blue Herons and Bald Eagles and if we are lucky we may see some.  Being on the water in the early evening listening to the sounds of the wildlife, is a unique paddling experience.

We will meet at 5:30 PM and paddle until about 7:30 (directions below for location)

Minimum age is 13 (13-15 yrs must have a participating adult with them, 16-17 yrs must have a parent/guardian sign participant agreement but do not need to attend)

please be dressed for the weather please bring water, snacks and any personal medicines you may need as well as bug repellant flashlight or headlamp;  2 glow sticks and extra clothes and footwear for the ride home Don't forget your kayak, PFD (required), whistle and paddle for a evening of fun

Directions to the meetup location.  Round Lake is on Route 9 just north of Clifton Park;  Take a right (going north or left going south) onto Goldfoot Road.  Take a right at the end of the street.  The road will end at the parking area.

Phil will have a black Suzuki Kizashi

If you have any trouble finding us, my cell is [masked], feel free to call or text.

Please be considerate and change your RSVP to NO if your plans change to allow someone else to attend.

    I usually do not comment on the paddles or hikes... but this one was great... the rain went south, the wildlife was abundant and the sunset was spectacular...

    Fabulous evening! The weather held up, beautiful sunset was amazing and almost full moon was great. Thank you Dorothy and Phil.

    Great paddle. Mother Nature decided to cooperate after all. Nice sunset followed by the moon light shimmering on the lake. The juvenile bald eagle sighting was a real bonus. Thanks Dorothy and Phil for leading.

    • Ann Marie

      You have to go on the waiting list...stinks, but I get it. Read Dorothy's post.

      September 13

  • Ann Marie

    Messed up, didn't put plus one : (

  • Dorothy

    When you have 2 people coming under the same name you need to add a +1 to the reservation, otherwise the second person is not counted. It is best if each have an account and each RSVP to the outing. For those of you bringing someone that did not add a +1, create an account for the extra person and add them to the wait list.... 90% of the time, enough people with cancel to let everyone who is on the waitlist attend.

    If you amend your RSVP, both of you will be added to the waitlist and then you have to wait until 2 spots are free before you are moved up.

  • Ann Marie

    This may sound like a silly question: do we need to bring our own kayak? Or is there one we can rent/use at the site?
