http://photos3.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/4/a/8/600_264481192.jpeg Recently Kingston State Park was suggested to me as a place for this type of event. So I got a chance to paddle there today with Mary Ann and Bob K and would really like to return. Although Great Pond is not huge, it's plenty big enough and perfect for some relaxing paddling.
I would gladly get there early so as to grab a couple tables in an area with some shade. It is about a 30 yard carry from the parking lot to the water, but isn't bad if we help each other out, I can bring a couple of coolers with ice for peoples food and drinks. This is a rather small state park but didn't seem at all crowded today and the atmosphere seemed quite nice.
They do rent canoes, but not kayaks, but I have a few available. If there is any interest I could look into renting a paddle board if I can locate one nearby for people to just play around with.
