River Runners Paddle

August 4 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Kayaking on the Sangamon
The next Sangamon paddle excursion, departs from the Hazen Bridge at 9:30am. We’ll take out at Lake of the Woods Forest Preserve. The trip is limited to 18 participants.
The USRC provides up to 3 canoes and 8 kayaks, with paddles and floatation, and will transport them. We welcome paddlers who bring their own kayak or canoe, but they should plan to transport their watercraft.
There is no parking at Hazen Bridge, so everyone will need to park at the LOW kayak launch by 9:00 am. BYO’s will need to allow time to drop their watercraft at the starting point, and drive to and park at the take-out. We will provide transport to Hazen Bridge.
All paddlers must be adults or accompanied by an adult, and be experienced and able to properly handle their watercraft on moving water. Personal floatation devices are required while on the water. The Sangamon may seem like a lazy river, but like all rivers, she can surprise you very quickly. We encourage you to review the Water Safety Resources on our Paddler’s Information page.
REQUIRED FREE registration opens noon June 29 until filled. Please read our Liability Waiver before filling out the RSVP. You must acknowledge having read and accept to complete registration.
USRC does not charge for these events, but encourages everyone to make a voluntary donation by clicking the “Donate” button on this page. Thanks!
