Drop you boats off at the boat ramp located at the Squam Lake Association. There is a $5 launch/parking fee. Then park your car large lot next to the main building.

Paddle will be approx. 8-10 miles. Squam is a large lake...so wind can create waves over the long fetch.

Life vests aka PFDs must be worn when paddling with this group

We will be dining at Walter's Basin Restaurant after the paddle if you plan to join us please indicate this in your RSVP by answering yes to that question.

    Weather for Saturday is forecasted to be mostly sunny with temps in the 50s and a west wind up to 10mph. So please dress appropriately and bring extra clothing preferably fleece pullover or jacket with a nylon or waterproof wind breaker. A warm hat is also a good idea and for those who's hands get chilly easily gloves you can wear while paddling would be a good idea as well. If you decide not to attend please change your RSVP to Not Attending. See you at Squam...
