    Join us at this unique Indiana State Park for a mid-week car camping, paddling, and hiking trip!

    We will CAMP in up to 4 adjoining Class B Non-electric sites (2 tents per site, water and modern restrooms/showers available), and share group meals and activities. If you need a tent, the Club has a few for loan.
    ACTIVITIES include day paddling through the chain of nine small connecting kettle lakes via kayak or canoe (rentals available or you can bring your own boat); hiking some of the trails, which range from easy to rugged; swimming at the lake beach;  fishing (rowboats also available for rental), and perhaps a field trip to the nearby Gene Stratton-Porter State Historic Site. Each participant will be responsible for his or her own boat rental fees, and PFDs must be worn at all times when on the water. Personal boats must have a 2018 DNR non-motorized lake permit sticker on them.
    In the evenings we might go on a night hike, do some star gazing, have a campfire, sing campfire songs (bring an instrument if you play one!), tell stories, and just relax among good company!
    FOOD:  Participants will provide their own lunch and trail snack items, and whatever cold drinks they prefer.  Two dinners and breakfasts and campfire snacks will be provided, as well as stoves, fuel, charcoal, firewood, ice, cooking pots, etc.
    DETAILS about arrival time, carpooling options (probably from the Walmart in Noblesville on SR 37), and what to bring along will be sent by email prior to the trip. Participants will need to send a completed medical form to the trip leader in advance of the trip. These will be brought along for reference in case of an emergency and returned to you after the trip.
