Paddle the Pepacton
October 5 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Experience an incredible outdoor adventure, paddling the beautiful Pepacton Reservoir. Join Catskill Mountain Club board member Ann Roberti for a scenic paddle on this NYC reservoir. Bring your own CANOE or KAYAK (it must be steam cleaned prior to putting it in the reservoir — see more below) or rent from a local business that has kayaks stored on site.
We will launch promptly at 11AM from the Shavertown Bridge Recreational Boating Launch site on the north side of the bridge.
Life jackets and DEP Access Permit (available free of charge online) required. All boats must be steam cleaned prior to arrival on site and have a valid DEP access sticker. Many vendors store boats on site, requiring only that you visit the store to pay and to pick up paddles and PFDs.
