You need your own kayak or canoe, and supplies to participate in this event.
This event is not for beginners, the water is too high and fast.
Join me for a fun filled 2-3 hour trip down the lower Yahara River to Murwin Park. The water moves quickly here.
We will meet at the Stebbinsville dam launch site at 9:30 am and shuttle cars. Expect to get on the water at approximately 10:00 am. If you arrive late you may have to catch up to the group. Regardless of where you park your car (launch site or exit point) we will have vehicles available for shuttling purposes. Don't be concerned with vehicle shuttling when traveling with this group. Our shuttle methodology isn't an exact science but works well for us (common sense and cooperation).
We will end at Murwin park in Fulton and kick back and relax and have a picnic. Everyone can bring what they want to eat to make it easier. There is a restroom there and picnic tables. I think there maybe a grill. I will check it out. Not a bad place to swim or wade in the small rapids. This is a suitable kayak for beginners unless the water is high.
More details: the launch site is at the old Stebbinsville dam, (Launch Site:[masked] W. Stebbinsville Rd, Edgerton, WI 53534,Longitude: [masked] Latitude:[masked]) Our exit point is in Fulton, WI (Exit point: Murwin Park,Longitude: [masked] Latitude:[masked]).
