Join the Campers at Jug Bay for a Paddle or a Hike

RSVP's for this event open Thursday, May 15th at 10:00 PM

Renters and those who have paid their voluntary dies receive priority on the wait list for this event. Everyone has the same chance at the first 12 slots.

There are at least a few of you who don't have the gear or the time to go camping on this weekend but still might like to join in the festivities for the day. If you are signed up for the camping trip DO NOT sign up for this event.

Here's an opportunity for those of you who ARE NOT CAMPING to join us on Saturday for a paddle or a hike or maybe even both.

It's a relatively short two mile paddle from the put in to White Oak landing where we will be camping but hopefully we'll be up and fed and ready to have a few of you join us for the day's activities. The picture above shows the location of the campsite on Mataponi Creek which is only accessible by water. It's taken from an observation tower a short distance away that is a pretty nice hike to get some awesome views of the area surrounding Jug Bay.

Saturday we will break us in to smaller groups for the day with various destinations. White Oak Landing is located on Mataponi Creek which has all sorts of neat places to explore as you paddle further back in when the tide is high. For those who want a bit more, it's a 12 mile round trip paddle to Spice Creek which is equally interesting. The current game plan is for Kimmie to come along but depending on how her back is doing she might just hang out at the camp site. Everyone is welcome to join her for that too if that's what she does.

I am quite literally shooting from the hip without a real plan on this one but I think there will be a couple of options that everyone might enjoy. We made it work last year so I'm sure we can again this year. Some people even stayed and cooked dinner with the campers. You can make it what ever you want it to be.

There are rental kayaks with paddle and PFD available for this even at the weekend day price of $55.00. Please answer the rental question when you RSVP to reserve a kayak.
