Camping and Paddling at Lake Rosalie
Camp overnight at Lake Rosalie County Park and paddle at 10 am saturday morning (maybe a moonlight paddle as well) . The campsites are first come first serve. No hookups, no electricity, there is a bathroom with showers on site. This is a fishing launching area. It is quiet but there is activity related to fishing and boating. Campfire rings are available. This is a very bare bones, rustic kind of campground, fewer amenities as compared to your average state park. The launch area is nice sloping grass next to a boat ramp. The paddling is easy unless it is windy.Total distance about 10 miles, we are going slow and mostly birdwatching. The birding is incredible. This is a beginner level paddle, not for complete novices, if you have done at least some paddling then you will be fine. No non swimmers. Once you launch, there are very few places to get out of the kayak until you return to the boat launch, unless you want to do a wet exit and reentry which I don't recommend because there are really big gators. Really big. Not kidding. They are docile mostly. Don't go swimming. Really. Peeps are welcome to skip the overnight campout and join the paddle. As with all of our paddles, we are not guides and we are not instructors. We are a group of kayaking enthusiasts out for a good time. We help each other, learn from each other, and enjoy the privilege of being . By participating in any of our paddles you assume all risks and responsibilities for your personal health and safety and for your equipment. It is important for everyone that each participant be prepared for the trip. Please use your discretion and best judgment when joining a trip. Be sure you are up to the paddle -- physically, mentally and that your equipment is appropriate for the intended trip. Know and respect your limits. Be safe and you will certainly enjoy another fantastic paddle.
