Event details

Ready for some adult time? Bring your adult drink of choice (beer and wine only, please) and come paddle the calm lake and watch the sun set in the summer sky. Once the tour is through, we’ll head back to shore and enjoy some beverages and make s’mores around a campfire.

All equipment is provided. Personal kayaks are welcome. Wear clothing that can get wet, including water shoes or old gym shoes. Consider bringing sunscreen, sunglasses and a water bottle.

We also offer private, one-on-one instruction. If interested, call 815-722-4121.
