Harrods Creek after work paddle

Paddle at Harrods Creek, we'll launch from the Harrods Creek Boat Harbor just behind Captains Quarters.  This paddle does not have an event hosts, so you should plan to arrive and self organize as to where to paddle.  Usually we paddle up the creek a few miles to the Great Blue Heron rookery, but paddling the Ohio River is also an option.

There is a fee to launch at Harrods Creek Boat Harbor which is $5 per kayak.  Yearly memberships are also available, see their website for more info.

      ..,.and wanted to let others know as well....that Quest Outdoors gives a 15% discount to LACK members. That counts a lot when one is buying a $265 Werner Camono...and helps keep the lights on at the top line outdoor supplier of gear in our area.

      ..and am not finished...Dicks Sporting Goods...prepare to be Dicked. Have broken two of their supposedly high end paddles.... Rain suit disintegrated at the seams....Would not stand up for any of their products. I'll never ever again grace their establishment with my coin.

    Is there a charge for parking in addition to the launch fee?

      Was looking forward to meeting everyone for my first event, but I pulled a muscle in my leg and don't think I'll be able to make it this evening :-(

    I'm new to paddling in Louisville. I only have my rec kayak with me currently, which I hope is good for Harrods Creek.

      A rec boat is fine, it's all still flatwater.

    My friend and I have never kayaked, so this will be our first time on the water! We look forward to having fun and meeting some cool people!

    My wife and I will paddle. We are both noobies. I might stop and fish along the way, but she plans to paddle with the group... so long as it goes up Harrods Creek, not out in the river.

    I agree with Lucy... any points of contact available?

    August 17, 2013

    • Mark M

      Hi Dennis, come on out. (see reply to Lucy)

    I understand that there is no event host but is there going to be anyone there willing to help with newbies? I'm pretty green at this but would like to start participating.

    August 17, 2013

    • Mark M

      Lucy, I usually make these and while, it is true, there is no official host, I seem to have inherited the unofficial title. I try to arrive a bit early and would be happy to help any way I can.Old guy, grey Ford Escape. Most days I am relatively people friendly. As to being new, don't sweat it. Good bunch of folks and a pretty easy paddle.

    A real beginner looking for some fun....
