Eagle Creek Park, Indianapolis paddle and Hog Roast

We will be paddling on Eagle Creek Lake in Indianapolis, with a hog roast afterwards at Brad Bixler's house.

We'll meet at the boat ramp about 1pm for a paddle, then head back to Brad's place for the hog roast by about 6pm.  The boat ramp for Eagle Creek is on the Southern portion of the lake, not inside the park.  There is a $5 launch fee.

    We got 5.91 inches of rain in Louisville yesterday. Third highest one-day rainfall amount in recorded history. Our meteorologists weren't forecasting rain until today. It snuck up on them....

    Great hog roast despite the weather. Thanks Brad.

    It looks like rain is very likely in the afternoon, so I'm going to call off the paddle. The hog roast is still on. The rain looks like it'll be around for an hour or two, so it's possible to have a paddle after it passes.

      Morale of the story: don't be the pig at a paddling event ;)

      That's a good lesson. Don't be the pig

    I am planning on leaving Saturday morning around 9 to head up for the paddle. if anyone wants to carpool and haul their kayak. I do have to leave early Sunday morning to get back to a softball game by noon in Louisville. Lemme know if this will work for you. Thanks

      I have jumped in a car with Chuck, Trang, and Christy. We are leaving around 1 (without kayaks), and returning around midnight. Contact Chuck or Trang if you wanna try and squeeze in. We could also take my Subaru if need be for a little extra room. Your thoughts Chuck & Trang?

      Josh, thanks for letting me know. I'm thinking about staying home this weekend. I've been gone so many weekends and will be gone the next 2-3, so I should stay home once in awhile. ;-)

    I don't have a good way of hauling my kayak that far that I'm comfortable with, if someone has room to hold another kayak I would greatly appreciate it and will offer some gas $$ for your trouble. If you can help feel free to contact me directly. You can text me at[masked]-3933. Thanks so much! :)

    Come on up to Indianapolis on Friday night if you want. Spend the whole weekend camped at my place & explore all Indy has to offer. Saturday night is the hog roast. Bring a chair, a dish to share & your beverage of choice
