Start the New Year off right with a First Day Paddle at Dunns Creek State Park! This interpretive kayaking tour along the beautiful and historical Dunns Creek is a great opportunity to meet other paddlers, learn about the waterway's rich history and resources, and get back on the water to enjoy the Great Outdoors!
The Friends of Dunns Creek State Park have 6 kayaks available to rent on a first-come, first-serve basis. You are also welcome to bring your own kayak. There are two separate tickets available - one for rental and one if you will be bringing your own kayak. Please choose the one that applies to you. Ticket purchase includes your entry into the park. We will launch from the water access primitive parking lot on Dunns Creek.
Participants must be 18 years or older. Kayaking is a water sport, so expect to get wet and dress accordingly. For more information about the program and directions, please call Sam Carr at 386-937-3901.
