Pine River Paddling and Base Camping April 14-15

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 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
