    Eagle Creek Tuesday Evening Paddles

    Eagle Creek paddles started on July  7th and run through the end of September.  These are unstructured paddles where HCKC members can explore the lake and train to develop speed-endurance or to practice skills.   If you would like to paddle with other HCKC members, I would recommend coordinating that through the club bulletin board, Facebook or e-mail.

    • When:    Tuesday, July 7 through September 29, 2020
    • Starting Time - Between 1:00 pm to Closing:  HCKC Members may use the pass to enter the park with their boats any time after 1:00 pm on the specified Tuesdays.
    • Ending Time - Park Closing Time:   When you enter the park, look at the closing time posted at each of the park entrances since these times change during the year.  They normally lock at least one of the gates at closing time.
    • Where to Launch:  :
      Ramp near Discovery Center —Enter the park at either the 56th Street or 71st Street entrance and follow the signs to the Discovery Center or “Go Ape!”  Use the boat/kayak ramp across the parking lot from the Discovery Center (next to Go Ape).   
      Marina Personal Boat Launch - You can also launch from the personal boat launch next to the building with bathrooms near Eagle Creek Outfitters.  Please do not launch at the beach at Eagle Creek Outfitters since it is reserved for their use.
      Note: This pass is not valid at the Dandy Trail ramp at the south of 56th street near Ric’s.
    • 2020 HCKC-Eagle Creek Pass:  Current HCKC Members must print the 2020 HCKC pass and show it to the Eagle Creek gate staff to get in without paying.  The fee for park admittance is at least $8 for a car with one kayak or canoe otherwise.

      To Get the Pass: 
       This program is only available for current HCKC members.  To access the pass, go to:
       Eagle Creek Tuesday Pass
      Note:  You will be prompted to enter your e-mail and password if you are not already logged in.

     FW/SK Trip Announcement: Cataract Falls Full Moon Paddle         October 3, 2020
    Trip Sponsor:  Wally Burchfield

      Want to see the largest water falls in Indiana and paddle under the full moonlight? Here's your chance! This is a fun paddle and is open to most experience levels. Paddler must be able to paddle 8 miles round trip. These are head waters so this is a paddle rather than a float - there is no current but we will paddle at a moderate rate.  The speed of motor boats is restricted so we should not have any problems with boat wake.

        We will meet up at the Cunot boat ramp (Map) at 5:30PM and launch by 6:00PM.  We will paddle to the falls and take a short break there. Pit bathrooms are available at the falls. Most of the return trip will be under moonlight.

        You are required to have a PFD, a good light source such as headlamp or flashlight  and a $5 2020 DNR non-motorized boat sticker on your boat . Boat stickers can be purchased online at http://stores.innsgifts.com/2014-state-park-permits/ or at any state park. The gate house at Lieber SRA should have them. You will pass it if you are coming from the north.  Keep in mind if ordering off the website, it'll take about a week for them to ship it to you.

    Please contact Wally Burchfield if you have questions.

    Covid-19 Safety:

    To minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19, we will be following the HCKC Corona Virus Guidelines which includes maintaining social distancing. All participants should bring personal protection items such as face mask and sanitizer.

    Please complete the Waiver/ COVID Screening Form the day prior to the event and submit to the Trip Sponsor/Lead ( include TEMPERATURE). Anyone experiencing symptoms of Covid-19 or direct exposure as detailed on the form, should not attend the event.

    Links to the Corona Virus Guidelines and the Waiver/COVID Screening   can be found on the Sea Kayaking page on the HCKC site.
