Come join us and explore a river section that's rarely paddled in the club!
There are several natural springs and waterfalls along this beautiful stretch of river. Saturday will be a long paddle at about 20 miles, so plan on about a 7-8 hour paddle.
Saturday, June 24, 9 AM EDT
We will meet at the Five Star Foodmart 1301 Main St, Munfordville, KY 42765 at 9AM eastern time (8AM central) and promptly leave for the put-in at 9:15AM EDT (8:15AM CDT).
The put-in is at Lynn Camp Creek, off of State Highway 566. Take out will be H.H.Wilson Park, off state highway 2185
(820 Munfordville-Linwood Rd, Munfordville, KY 42765)
This is a good beginner’s paddle as there aren’t very many snags to negotiate or any portaging necessary. However, this is a long paddle and there are no easy ways to get off the river. You must determine if your physical shape is up for a long paddle.
This paddle is also very flow dependent. If the flow is low, we will find somewhere else to paddle, so stay flexible. There is no fun in dragging boats for 20 miles. Locals say 3.5 ft. on the Munfordville gage is pretty much the minimum for a good trip.
There are camping grounds nearby at Horse Cave and Mammoth Cave National Park. I’ll be staying at MCNP campground beginning on Friday if anyone would like to share sites. Things to bring: pfd, paddle, lunch, beverages, lots of water, sunscreen, sunglasses, snacks, sense of adventure, and a sense of humor
