Where Do We Meet?

We Always Meet At The Boat Launch

Exact Location will be given after booking.

 

What You Should Bring/Wear

Show up in what you typically wear for a day in the sun on the water. It’s smart to bring some footwear you don’t mind getting dirty/wet. Essential items to bring is a hat, sunglasses, a sun shirt, sunscreen, and plenty of water. Wear layers in the cooler months.

Is My Child Old Enough?

Every kid is different so its hard to put an exact age on it, so the best way to judge is ask yourself this question: Can my child handle 3 hours walking around in the elements away from bathrooms or videogames? If yes then they are old enough 🙂

Are There Restrooms/Lockers

There are no restrooms, changing rooms, or lockers at the boat launches.

Where Do I Park?

Exact location will be given after you book, but its important to keep in mind:

Arrive early in the summer months to find parking. Never park in spots designated for trailers or you will be ticketed.
