Water Trail Most Likely to Reopen Midweek July 17, 2014

mcgi4_hgIF the rain continues to hold off “Up North” and IF the Wyalusing State Park Staff can get out onto the water trail for sign repair and removal of downed trees and IF the canoes/kayaks can be cleaned up in time, there is a possibility that the canoes/kayaks will be available for rental at  the Friends of Wyalusing State Park Concession Stand. (Click on image to increase size.)

Park visitors can use personal watercraft at any time.

The concession stand has four(4) single person kayaks and 18 canoes available for rental. Visitors wishing to rent canoes/kayaks must stop at the concession stand located at the top of Wisconsin Ridge Campground to complete a rental agreement and receive equipment. Included with each canoe rental are Personal Flotation Devices for each occupant and two canoe paddles and a map.

Visitors drive to the boat landing. All of the gear must be returned to the concession stand in good, preferably dry,  condition.

It is recommended that no more than three adults occupy a canoe, one adult each on seats in the front and back, and one adult seated on the bottom of the canoe.  If children accompany the adults, it is recommended that the canoe contain no more than two adults and two children. The children will sit on the floor of the canoe. Personal flotation devices must be worn at all times by everyone in the canoe/kayak.

All rented watercraft must stay on the marked canoe trail. It will be easier for park staff to begin a search if a problem arises.
