Event details

Close out the summer on the water at Whalon Lake. Take in the last little bits of warmth as certified instructors guide you on a tour of the lake. Then end around a campfire to roast hot dogs and s’mores.

This is a recreational, noninstructional program. All equipment is provided. Wear clothing that can get wet, including water shoes or old gym shoes. Prior paddling experience is strongly recommended.

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