Kegonsa Sea Kayaking Weekend!
Saturday, Jul 9, 2022 - 7:30 am through Sunday, Jul 10, 2022 - 7:00 pm
Here's your chance to experience all 4 lakes of Madison and camp out of a sea kayak! Starting at the Union on Saturday morning, we'll load up our boats with camping gear and follow the course of the Yahara River for 17 miles (a full day of paddling!), passing through lakes Mendota, Monona, Wabesa, and Kegonsa. We'll pull ashore at Lake Kegonsa State Park and hike a short distance inland to our campsites. On Sunday, we'll return the way we came! We will plan to meet at the boathouse at 7:30am on Saturday and hope to be back around 7pm Sunday night.
The cost of the trip is $20. This covers food and campsite fees.
The SK1 rating and a Standard Swim Test are required to participate. If you do not have these ratings, sign up for the waitlist and we will have more SK1 lessons available on the calendar soon!
