What we're about

Welcome to the group that paddles Ohio‘s, rivers and creeks. If you enjoy paddling moving water (and some lakes too), this is the group for you! Keep in mind that paddling in moving water involves more inherent risk than paddling still water. Because of this, some paddles may not be appropriate for new or beginner paddlers. You must read and accept our release of liability prior to joining or attending any event. Now, lets go paddling!

Give Back to Cowan Lake - Volunteer Pancake Flipper at Cowan Lake Fest

Hey guys, Ohio Paddlers will be supporting the Cowan Lake Fest Pancake Breakfast by making pancakes for all the campers on Sunday morning. This is to support the Cowan Lake Fest and to give back to the lake that provides us so much enjoyment. Plus, you get free breakfast. That's right. All you have to do it flip pancakes in the morning and enjoy Lake Fest all day. All the supplies and food are being provided, you just have to show up and flip pancakes. We also need a couple people to serve and take money. The time will go by quickly and you are welcome to stay and enjoy Lake Fest. Please help us to promote paddling in our communities by volunteering at this fine event. All proceeds will be going to support Cowan Lake Fest. Free camping on Saturday night is being offered on the public beach.
