Announcing a new Meetup for Louisville Area Canoe & Kayak Group!
What: 18 Mile Island Day Trip / Camp
When: October 3,[masked]:00 PM
18 Mile Island
6600 Main St
Westport, KY 40077
This is a short paddle from the Westport Boat Ramp in KY to 18 Mile Island. The plan is hang out on the island, build a camp fire, paddle around, practice some skills, fish, etc. Some people will be camping, some just hanging out for the day. We plan to set up camp on the Indiana side of the Island about 1/3 of the way downstream from the start of the island on the beach. I'll plan to be on the island by about 4pm and will be camping, but feel free to get there anytime before or after. Some of us will have extra room if your boat isn't big enough for your camping gear, but you shouldn't need more than a tent, sleeping bag, and cooler. And we'll only be about a mile or so from the put-in, so making a trip back to the car shouldn't be a major ordeal.
The boat ramp is here:http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=38.478859,-85.480193&sll=38.478859,-85.480193&sspn=0.001787,0.002438&ie=UTF8&t=h&z=17
