What we're about

Once every month, we will plan a fun kayaking paddle where we have access to kayak rentals like Lake Martin for example. This way it's easy for everyone to attend. We will also explore other areas that may require your own kayak for more variety of adventure.

Lake Martin Kayaking Meetup!

Location visible to members

Important Updates:

  1. Champagne's has raised their prices again from $15 per hour to $20 per hour. We kayak for 2 hours and therefore the cost per person for 2 hours is $40.
    2. Please take Hwy 31 to Lake Martin. The entrance to Lake Martin from Prarie Hwy 353 is closed. As soon as it reopens, I'll remove this update.

Let's meet at Champagne's Cajun Swamp Tours at Lake Martin (https://champagnesswamptours.com/). You have 3 options when kayaking in Lake Martin.

  1. If you don't have a kayak or canoe, the rentals are $20.00 per hour.
  2. If you do have your kayak or canoe, Champagne's will charge $5 to launch from their pier.
  3. If you have your own kayak or canoe but don't want to pay anything to launch, there are several spots near Champagne's to launch your own kayak or canoe at no cost.

I'm thinking of adding hiking events here also. I purchased a subscription to, alltrails.com, and I will plan events based on convenience and overall ratings. I'm open to suggestions for future events.
