This is the second bi-annual Pawtuckaway Kayak and Beach BBQ meetup :) (I did this 2 years ago with this group - it was the first meetup for this group)
I will set up a picnic site near the beach where there will be a portable grill and charcoal, bring whatever you want to eat and maybe a side dish to share, plus whatever you want to drink. Note: Alcohol is prohibited in the park, FYI.
Meet at the Canoe Launch at Neal's Cove at 9:30 (Sat). If you want to stop by the beach first to drop stuff off and then come to the canoe launch so we can paddle straight to the beach after touring around, just get there by 9:00. The canoe launch parking is a drive from the beach, but you can walk there via the camp store area. I will have a table set up ahead of time. I will put a Meetup sign on the beach near the picnic site. BBQ will start around 1:00.
Also there is a $5 pp fee to enter the park.
They do rent kayaks at the beach store, but I am not sure of the time (I think not until 10:00). You should call the park for more info. Or there is a place to rent on the Mountain Rd which leads up to the park - Mountain Road Trading Post.
A couple of people (including me) will be camping there Friday and Sat night at the Neal's cove area, if you want to join us there are a few spots left as of May 5, but they fill up fast. Reserve your spot at Reserve America NOW!
Here's a map of the park if you haven't been there: http://www.nhstateparks.com/Maps/pawhiking.html You enter the park at point 1 and the canoe launch is at point 3 (turn right and then right again). The beach parking is further down the road after the Marsh on the right (the big square) Take exit 5 off Rt101 and follow Rt156 to Mountain Rd. There is a park sign there. Follow Mountain Rd to the park entrance. The address is 128 Mountain Rd, Nottingham, NH 03290.
