Announcing a new Meetup for Louisville Area Canoe & Kayak Group!

What: Overnight kayak camping on 18 Mile Island

When: Saturday, November 20,[masked]:00 PM

Where: 18 Mile Island
6600 Main St
Westport, KY 40077

Since this is for late November, there stands a chance that the weather will be a lot cooler than I like for kayaking. If you change your mind about going due to the weather, please be sure to update your RSVP so others can get an idea of how many people will be there.

We'll be camping out again on 18 Mile Island. The island is only about a mile from the boat ramp, so there's not a whole lot of paddling to do to get there. This is a great way to try out kayak camping just to make sure you bring all the right stuff, and that it all fits in your boat. And if it turns out you forgot something the boat ramp is just a short 10-15 minute paddle away. Once there we can hike around the island and paddle around. There are some old structures to check out on the island, and the narrow passage on the KY side of the island is a fairly scenic paddle. And if you just want to come out for the day and not camp that's great too.

The actual time people arrive, and actual camping spots will kinda be up in the air. Last time we had people spread out along the beach, but within walking distance of the campfire. But the kayaks should be easy to spot. You can also call my cell to get an update as to where we are:[masked]-5705.

Keep an eye on this page for any updates.
