Travel down the Carson River by canoe July 31Posted by jkittrell on Jul 12, 2010 in News, State Parks | Comments Off
The canoe trip will be about 3.5 miles, floating the stretch of the Carson River from just below the Lahontan Dam (River Camp) to the diversion dam. The trip will take approximately 2.5 hours to complete, followed by a barbecue with hamburgers, hotdogs, chips and water. A free raffle will also be held at the barbecue.
Nevada State Park canoes are available. Participants who would like to bring their own canoe or kayak are asked to bring a life jacket and paddle for each person in their boat.
All participants are asked to bring appropriate clothing, bug repellant, sunscreen and water.
Rangers will be available to answer questions, identify wildlife, interpret history of Lahontan State Recreation Area and talk about Nevada State Parks’ 75th anniversary.
Participants should meet at River Camp on the Lahontan Dam side of the park at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday July 31, 2010. Participants bringing their own boats will be asked to arrive at 8:00 a.m. to shuttle their vehicle to the take-out point.
Vehicles will be available to return participants to River Camp at the conclusion of the tour.
Participants are asked to leave names and numbers when making reservations, as the river conditions can vary. Call 775-577-2226, ext. 3, to reserve a space and a canoe, if needed.
