On Sunday drop off your canoe, kayak or unpowered boat (paddling or rowing only!) at your desired point of departure - Shaftesbury Ferry or Strong Creek.  Next, make your way to Kinsmen Park where you can leave your vehicle for the day.  After you check in with your ID, a shuttle will take you to your departure point.

  • 10:30am for those putting into the river at Strong Creek Park

Note:  Be sure to arrive at Kinsmen Park on Sunday at least 30 minutes prior to your shuttle's departure.  This will give you sufficient time to check in and make your way to your shuttle.  Additional shuttles are NOT available for late arrivals!

Participants must have life preservers for each person in their boat. We also recommend you bring appropriate clothing, water, sunscreen, and cash for concession. You will need ID when signing in.
