Camping and paddling weekend July 19-21, 2019. Camp reservations opened 2/1/19: Reserve online through School Section Lake Park Campground or call 231-832-3246. Sites 147-167 are near cabins 6 & 7
This is a great location for camping the the Chippewa River is a peaceful river. School Section Lake Park Campground is one hour north of Grand Rapids near Stanwood/ Canadian Lakes. It is on a beautiful lake for nice swimming and paddling. They also have a recreation area for baseball, volleyball, and basketball. We will have the Beach Shelter Saturday night for our potluck and other events will be near Cabins 6 & 7.
This is always a fun summer weekend. We will camp at School Section Lake and on Saturday take a 3-5 hour canoe/kayak trip down the Chippewa River starting at Buckley's (two options to choose from) followed up with a potluck dinner at the Beach Shelter. We enjoy bonfires both Friday and Saturday nights, and hang out at the beach on Sunday (and Friday afternoon if you arrive early). Friday night dinner at Blue Lake Tavern is enjoyed by most.
If you prefer to just go canoeing/kayaking on Saturday, that is fine also.
Registration of $13/members or $15/non-members provides two breakfasts and meat for Saturday night potluck.
Ability to register and pay online soon.
Trip leader is Lynne Black firstname.lastname@example.org
