WMCKA Paddle Heads East – Detroit River Weekend (Car Camping)

Join us for a paddle weekend. We will join the Detroit River Paddlers to explore the waters on their side of the Mitten.

We require a PFD to be worn while on the water.  If you are not willing to wear a PFD, you will not be able to join us. We also enjoy our adult beverages after the paddle is complete.  

To ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience, participants should have a boat with 2 bulkheads or floatation, a skirt for their kayak, and be able to perform an assisted rescue (performed recently). This event is open to the general public, provided they have the necessary equipment and skills. Our experienced leader, Kelly Rose, will guide this paddle.

By attending this event, you assume full responsibility for yourself and your guests' safety, equipment, and well-being during the event, including, but not limited to, loading, unloading, transporting boats and equipment.

Tentative schedule depending on conditions:

6/29/2024 Saturday - paddle from Ecorse Boat Launch, heading upstream to see Gordie Howe and Ambassador Bridges. Then we'll return for an optional Food truck rally and Jazz on the River at Dingell Park from 3-8.

Car camp at a Lower Huron Metro Park (Walnut Grove Campground) for the evening. I am in campsite 13.  You can make reservations by going HERE.  You will be responsible for your camping reservations.

6/30/2024 Sunday - morning paddle from Erie Metropark to the Detroit Light.
