What we're about

Work's over - let's play! We love to paddle, be it kayak, SUP (stand up paddleboards), canoe, outrigger canoe (OC1, OC2, etc.), even sculling, rowing, or land paddling. Forget the daily grind and get on the water with us in Southern Utah. See you at the lakes!

Organizers Bill and Michelle Ennis own/operate rental fleets at Gunlock State Park and Quail Creek State Park. They have been paddling these waters for over a decade and have thousands of hours logged and have paddled at all times of the year.

Please be considerate and take care of yourself by having and actively using appropriate, USCG-approved safety equipment. Remember, you are paddling at your own risk.
