Mirror Lake in October

  • Oct 9, 2010 · 11:00 AM

Meet on the East side of the lake - just south of the Echo Rock trail. Parking is just south of boat launch. See boat symbol on map near the swimming area and shelter.

Meet at the Mirror Lake State Park boat launch/picnic/beach/rental area and enjoy an afternoon of paddling, relaxing, eating and beauty! This is a meetup to enjoy the afternoon as you like with rental boats available for all who don't have a boat or don't want to bring their own. Mirror lake is beautiful and if you don't want to paddle, then go for a hike! Let's enjoy the last part of the season at this meetup. Bring your own food to cook out and picnic. This will be come as you please and do as you please for the afternoon. Mark your calendar!

Please let me know if you will be renting a single or double kayak at this meetup. Single kayaks will not be as readily available since the paddle shop renting them is selling their fall inventory, so I will reserve as many as I can from them.
All folks who rent kayaks must be at meetup at 11:00 a.m. This is to secure your reserved boat! If you don't reserve a boat through me, then your rental will be on the first come, first serve rule with the boats that are remaining for rent at the site. There will be plenty of double kayaks and canoes available for rent.
single kayak rents for $10/hour or $32/Day
double kayak rents for $15/hour or $35/Day

Please let me know if you want a kayak reserved before noon on Friday, Oct. 8th. I am making the call to reserve our kayaks at noon that day! Please do not call the park about this, they subcontract out to a paddle shop and I will be working directly with the paddle shop.

If you have questions, please email me! -- Barbara Nice - Thank you!

    A great outing with great people! Thank you, Barbara, for such a well-organized meetup... a perfect ending to a seemingly very successful kayaking season! I'll miss the water and y'all in the coming winter months!

    Renting a single kayak at Mirror Lake tomorrow? Let me know if you haven't already by noon. Then be at park by 11 a.m. to claim it... or take a risk later that there will be one available for you later in the day. thank you!
    I am hoping to arrive by 10:45. Paddle for awhile and then eat and paddle some more!

    I just spoke to Mirror Lake office and we're good to go on Saturday. Here is more detail on how the drawdown has affected the lake:
    the lake near hwy 23 is affected the most by the drawdown. You can still paddle to the boat landing located off of Lake View Road and the main channel. The rice beds are dry, people usually do not boat/canoe in that area much anyway.
    We won't be using that boat landing, but the one in the park.
    Grills are ok also!
    See you Saturday!

    I am checking on the boat rental situation for this meetup. I don't know yet if I can reserve a number of kayaks for our group. Or, if it will be first come, first serve. I will post that info as soon as I here back from the rental company! --Barbara
