Final Update and details.

Water is going to be perfect.  We will also be doing the longer trip. It adds 2 miles. Be on time and there by no later 10am and ready to go.

When you get there, get your shuttle fee's paid for and or your rentals. Let them know you're with Louisville Area Canoe & Kayak. Bring your boat to the grass across from the rental office and be ready to load.

If you run late, catch the next shuttle to the longer trip and try and catch up. We will not be waiting on you at the office if you're late.

Bring all that you need including lunch and sunscreen.

I will take calls up untill 10am load time

    Would LOVE to join u. But, would really like to carpool from Lville. Please let me know if anyone us interested.

      I'll have two yaks on my car! MIGHT have room for another (no cradles tho!?), plus we are going to camp Sun night. Will leave sometime around 2:30ish (vague enough?). Not sure when I'll have time to see if another will fit with it being this late in week. Maybe Sat afternoon, but if we can't make it work that might leave you in a bind. I'll be online tomorrow (Fri) about 1:00 and maybe later too.

    Hey y'all! Mikel said that the river will be pretty busy that day so if you are needing to reserve a kayak - to call now and do that! I called today and was able to reserve two. I have the time for 10:00 - based off what Mikel told me we would be getting in the water. Just an FYI Showing up for a paddle party without a boat ...would make for a pretty bad day...just saying

    Camping is $9.00/person. It's primitive meaning it's an open field that you can pitch a tent in. They do have restrooms and a couple of showers. Also, the price for shuttling boats is still $15.00/boat. Questions?

    Everyone beware I65 is under construction at about the 30mm to about the 38mm an again at the 40mm to almost exit 50.

    • Ron S.

      Yeah just rode 65 last weekend, horrible

      May 20, 2014

    • Jeremy K.

      Strap down good! I think they have been paving it for years.

      May 20, 2014

  • DC G.

    Does anyone wish to camp there Sunday night!

    May 18, 2014

    • DC G.

      I'm planning on leaving Louisville about 2:- 2:30 getting there 3:-3:30-ish. Can set up group sites (I think) or general areas. Still waiting on Blues to respond to my email questions I sent earlier. Hope to have more answers in a day nor two.
