There are more than 30 launches accessible to the public to launch a canoe or kayak within 12 miles from our shop!  They range from small, remote hand-launch sites at local bridge crossings that provide access to quiet, unspoiled waterways, up to large state-owned launch facilities with lots of motorized boat traffic.  Each location offers its own unique paddling experience and views.  Find a new place each time you go!


With over so many public launch locations mapped out, there's always somewhere new to go kayaking, paddleboarding, or canoeing! Get in touch with us if you have any suggestions regarding public launch sites that we've missed, and we'll add them. We are always looking for great spots to launch which are public, easy access, and great fun!

If looking for a group to go out with, consider joining the MeetUp group we host. Throughout the paddling season we take unguided short trips out at a variety of locations - see the group page for more details!
