Paddle the Pepacton Reservoir – moved to Sunday October 8th

October 8, 2023 @ 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. 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 11 AM from the Shavertown Bridge Recreational Boating Launch site on the north side of the bridge. All boats must be steam cleaned prior to arrival on site and have a valid DEP access sticker. Rental boats are available – many vendors store boats on site, requiring only that you visit the store to pay and to pick up paddles and PFDs. For more information on vendors, regulations and more, please visit https://cwconline.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/FINAL-PEPACTON.pdf and https://cwconline.org/reservoir-boating/
