Kayak Peters Creek
Open for RSVPs Sep 13. Here's an opportunity to get outside together on a weekday. Let's take a beautiful, leisurely paddle up Peters Creek in Green Cove Springs to see swamp/wetland banks, birds, and other wildlife. Total distance will be about 6 miles. We'll go to Ronnie's - a great fish camp restaurant in Green Cove Springs - after our paddle (232 Walnut St., Green Cove Springs). Park and put in at Camp Chowenwaw on Black Creek. Bring water, bug spray, and sun block. Bring your own kayak. PFD and whistle are mandatory and you must wear your PFD. Bring your cart if you have one; it's a little ways to the launch point. We have identified a kayak rental company that will deliver kayaks to our put-in location. They require a minimum of 3 kayak rentals and they will then deliver, so if three or more of you want to group together and rent kayaks, you can contact the company directly: Adventure Amore at[masked]. Rental includes all equipment, drop off and pick up for $50 per kayak. Please arrive by 8:30 to put in at 9:00 a.m. Restrooms available at the boat ramp. Take U.S. 17 south from Orange Park. Immediately after crossing Black Creek just north of Green Cove Springs, turn right on Ball Rd at the sign for the camp. The gate opens at 8:00 a.m. At the Y in the road, turn right. NOTE: You are required to sign a liability waiver to participate in our outings. A copy will be available at your outing. There is also a link to the waiver on our web site at: https://www.sierraclub.org/florida/northeast-florida/get-outdoors
