Kayak at Keswick

  • May 4, 2014 · 10:00 AM
  • Keswick Boat Launch

Let's get some paddling in before the real heat comes.  How long has it been since you have kayaked Keswick?  Time to take another look!  Northern California’s Sacramento River system provides diverse and unique paddling opportunities.  Keswick Reservoir is the afterbay of Shasta Lake, which is one of the largest lakes in California. The reservoir is an outdoor paradise of fresh sparkling, blue water, awe-inspiring inlets and awesome kayaking. 

Wind & Weather Conditions: The water level fluctuates frequently and daily, depending on operations at Shasta Lake Dam. Water levels are drawn down in the fall to allow winter and spring rains to fill the reservoir instead of flooding the surrounding land. Summer days are perfected by warm temperatures cooled off by the 77 degree waters ( Or cooler). Lakeside picnics and hours of kayaking if we choose.

Please bring your favorite lunch or snacks when we get out of the kayaks to stretch our legs around noon or so.  And of course plenty of water to rehydrate.


Required: Personal floatation devise (PFD) and a sound device (like a whistle) 

Advised: Self rescue knowledge and capabilities.  This is cold water and can cause hypothermia.... not to scare folks off, but just saying. 

Other items: Hats, sunscreen, sunglasses and a smile. 

Pets:  Although I am a pet owner myself and for the safety of our furry friends, this is not a pet friendly event.


**The trip organizer is a volunteer and NOT a real leader (i.e. not liable for the group). Think of it as kayaking with a group of friends. 

**Joining any event is entirely voluntary and participants assume any and all risks and financial responsibilities associated with the activities; for example... bodily harm or injury and or death from wildlife, weather, terrain, falls, waterways, acts of God, etc. It is each persons responsibility to ensure that s/he is in sufficient fitness and health to participate in a strenuous activity, with the appropriate water, food, clothing, first aid, survival gear and navigation equipment for the conditions.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
