LOAPC will be organizing a paddling trip on the Pine River the weekend of April 14-15, 2012. For those coming up on Friday night we are suggesting camping at Coolwater Campground http://www.coolwatercamp.com/ as many of us will be there. Camping fees are each individual’s responsibility. There are other campgrounds in the area if you prefer something different. This is a base camp weekend as all camping gear will remain on shore.
Saturday morning we will meet at the parking lot at the top of the hill at Dobson Bridge at 9:00 am to run shuttle upstream to Silver Creek State Forest Campground where we will launch.
Sunday morning we will meet at 9:00 am at the Dobson Bridge launch site to run shuttle downstream to Low Bridge.
Day paddling requires a lunch and water, and the wearing of a PFD. Depending on weather conditions you may need rain gear, and bring an extra set of dry clothes in a dry bag if you accidentally capsize your boat. The water is still cold this time of year no matter what the air feels like.
always wear your PFD
