Duck River Paddle and Camp Starlight Hootenanny!

Howlin' Hill (formerly Rat's Nest Campground)

May the Fourth be with us! Let's kick off the warm weather season with a 5 mile lazy day paddle and overnight camp on the majestic Duck River! Post-paddle Star-Wars themed costume party and raffle drawing at the Howlin' Hill stage, benefiting the Tennessee Scenic Rivers Association. There will be a live evening concert by a band tbd by Howlin’ Hill. Howlin' Hill provides primitive camping, porta-potties on-site that are very well maintained and cold water showers. Each campsite is a small forest clearing with a fire pit and can host a varied number of tents or hammocks. Campsite is also a kayak/canoe rental, so this trip is perfect for bringing friends who want to start paddling but don't have their own gear yet. This stretch of the Duck is perfect for beginners, and a nice relaxing ride for ol' grizzled veterans. River disembarking location is right at the riverside campsite. Up the boat ramp and we're home. Bring your guitars, fiddles, mandolins, whatever you play for campfire jamming. Camping, boat rental and shuttle rates: $15 per person overnight camping + live music. $25 Kayak, paddle, and PFD rental. $20 per person Canoe, oar, and PFD rental. $15 shuttle fee if you bring your own boat, paddle, and PFD. $10 Firewood delivery per fire pit (optional) No need to make individual reservations. I will call ahead to have them set aside the proper equipment anticipating our arrival. Bring food, water, and firewood; trash bags and appropriate cookware for campfire cuisine. This is a dog-friendly event! As long as your dog is friendly. PFD required! Kids are welcome, with the caveat that alcohol is permitted in the campground and other campers attending will be enjoying adult beverages if they choose. Live amplified music will likely go on until fairly late in the evening. Schedule: Saturday, May the Fourth: 9:00 AM: Arrive at Howlin' Hill/Duck Canoe and check in at the "guard shack". Unload boats and basic camping gear and set up tents & hammocks in the camping area to claim your spot. Leave all valuables secured in your vehicle in the parking area! 9:30 AM: Safety meeting at the stage. We will go over basic safety procedures and organize into small groups with a minimum of 2 experienced paddlers per group of 8 total. 9:45-10:45 AM: Groups being shuttling upriver to the access point. Launch as soon as you're ready, no need to wait for everyone to get to the access point! 3:00-4:00 PM: Return to campsite. Note: As soon as your boat is back on dry land, the -official- Paddle Adventures Unlimited event is done, and you will be under the legal liability waiver of the campground that you sign upon arrival. The -unofficial- portion of the trip begins at this point. 4:00-8:00 PM: Relax, unwind, light the fire pits, cook your dinner, explore the hiking trails, hang out with all of your new friends and get ready for the costume party and concert! TSRA representatives will be selling raffle tickets on-site. 8:00-11:00 PM: Meet at the stage for the second main event! Raffle and costume contest will be announced during the band's set break. 11:00 PM-11:00 AM: Do what'chya wanna!

FULL MOON PADDLE

Hamilton Creek Marina

Time: Meet at 6:00 PM for 6:30 PM START. Distance 2 miles Estimated time: 2 hours + stops Leader: Hassan (mobile[masked]) Let's leisurely paddle around a few islands while enjoying the view of the full moon against the night sky and it's reflection on the water. We will paddle about 2 miles and stop at one of the islands for a half hour. This will be a great time to enjoy the view and a snack if you choose to bring one. You must have at least one light which can be seen from any direction or 2 lights in front and back of your kayaks. A strong light inside you boat (simple flashlight) is a great addition.
