This trip is limited to members with a wet exit certification (except for level 1 trips when the paddler is not using a spray skirt....if the paddler is wearing a spray skirt on a level 1 paddle, the Wet Exit Certification is REQUIRED). 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 if you intend to wear a spray skirt. Your acceptance is conditional on approval by the Organizer, who may contact you with questions about your skills and equipment. If the measured water temperature is different enough from that listed below to warrant a change in required immersion protection, the Organizer will contact all participants and the Trips Board member with the update at least a day before the trip.

Activity Title: Afternoon Delight at Lacamas Lake L1, 8-10-22
Date of Activity: 8/10/2022
Narrative: Join me at Lacamas Lake in Camas for a pleasant paddle and at least one stop to swim and splash in the water! The water is warm!!
There’s still some water lily’s and hocus in bloom to admire.
A gorgeous view of Mt Hood and a serene paddle up the stream at the end of the lake!
Great opportunity to practice rescues too!
About a 6 mile mellow paddle! If we want to add another mile we can paddle over to Round Lake with no power boats and to see the dam! Lacamas Lake can be busy with power boats and jet ski’s.
