As with most trips at Events, signups will be at the Event.

Narrative: Sign-ups at the Event. Lilypads and sand dunes and woods. 90 min. three-mile round-trip up the east arm or take more time to explore other parts of the lake. Dunes on one side, coastal woodlands on the other. We need to park and launch at the boat launch area which is to the left immediately upon turning onto the road which takes you to the north part of the Day Use area. Parking is limited. Some folks may need to unload boats and park their cars a short walk away in one of the large Day Use parking lots. You’ll need a day pass or annual pass if you haven’t checked into a campsite. Bathrooms at the nearby larger Day Use lots. Paddle time TBD; before or after breaking camp. Lunch in Florence after, maybe.
