FULL MOON NIGHT PADDLE at Simpson Lake
October 9 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT
ONE OF OUR FAVORITE PADDLING EVENTS!
HOSTED BY STL COUNTY.
You can bring your own kayak or rent a canoe from them.
Good for beginners, dogs and “greenies”. There are only a few of these each year, and some get rained out.
It’s $8 to register if you have your own boat or $25 to rent a canoe. This includes hot dogs and marshmallows afterwards. If you rent a canoe, they have 2 time slots: 6:00-7:30 and 7:30 to 9:00. Moon usually comes out around 8:00, but it does change each month.
It doesn’t exactly coordinate with our BYOBoat people. We usually launch around 7:00 and stay out until 9:00 or 9:30 with our own boats.
A fun evening of just doing mostly nothing, sitting out on the lake waiting for the full moon to come up. You can pretty much do whatever you want. We will go around the lake probably. Maybe up the creek, but greenies have to be careful there.
Meet at the beach, not boat launch ramp.
Bring headlamp or lantern….you’ll be deflating after dark.
Bring bug spray. Bugs aren’t bad on the lake, but they are when you’re packing up to go home.
CALL 314-615-8822 TO REGISTER/RESERVE.
Your rsvp here does not get you a canoe.
I hope that all of you will pay the $8, even if you have your own kayak, so they will keep doing these. Last year, they let us pay on site, but then they can’t plan for food….so please don’t eat the hotdogs if you don’t register in advance. Thanks
