Registration

  • Active club members, including kayaking professional and lifetime. Provisional acceptance, pending approval by the trip organizer if this is a paddle

Registration is closed

This trip is limited to members with a wet exit certification (paddlers that are not using a spray skirt, or paddling a canoe or SUP).  To successfully register you will need to sign into your OOPS member account, and your account will need to be a member of the "Wet Exit Certified" group.

Narrative:    "Let’s wind around the small islands, paddle under the bridge to little Round Lake, and head up to the stream that feeds Lacamas Lake.  This will be a relaxed pace trip.  SUPs or canoes welcome.  For those folks who generally paddle faster, use this opportunity to practice your skills while going circles around the group or see if you can get any volunteers for towing practice.  We’ll be on the water about 3 hours, traveling six miles, with a couple opportunities so get out of our boats and stretch our legs or have a snack or lunch.  Lacamas Lake Regional Park has great hiking trails and a nice park, in case you want to add that to your trip or you have a non-paddling friend who would like some dry land activity while you’re on the water.  Be sure to take the trail across the dam and go see the waterfall.  Learn more about the park here (scroll down the page):  https://www.clark.wa.gov/public-works/lacamas-lake-regional-park

Parking is free and there is a bathroom.  We’ll launch at 10:30, so please arrive by 10:00 a.m. or whatever time you need to get ready.  My plan is to be off the water by 1:30 p.m.
