Let's meet at Lake Hodges at 9:00 AM, Saturday, 7/27 and paddle for about 2+ hours or so and it will probably be about 5-6 miles.
It's been a few years since I paddled the lake, so I don't have an exact spot to meet up at the lake but as I remember there was a boat dock that shows on the map link just about where the green arrow is. We can probably drop our kayaks off in the dirt there and then move our vehicles to the parking lot.
It costs $2.00 to paddle your own single kayak and $7.00 to paddle your own tandem kayak for the day. They have iron rangers for collecting your money and they only take cash as I remember from past experiences. Parking is free.
I believe they have kayak rentals there as well, but I don't have info about them other than the concession stores phone number,[masked]-2023. It will be up to you guys to arrange for your rental if you need one.
Also, one other item is the Lake Hodges website states that they inspect all boats for Quagga Mussels, so make sure you boat is clean and dry when you arrive or they may not let you launch.
