This is a Non HCKC Event. Registration here is a convenience for our members to coordinate travel, food, misc. expenses, camping and or lodging offsite of the Fest. Typically most attendees camp at the the Fest location, Greenhouse Park which has the advantage of being the takeout for Stoneycreek.

Stoneycreek is near Johnstown PA. Fest Location is Greenhouse Park (which google maps will recognize and give you turn by turn directions). The link to the official website is http://benscreekcanoeclub.com/rendezvous/ . The entrance fee for the weekend festival is $10 and camping is available. This has been a favorite of club members even though it is not an official club trip. The Stoney flows right past the campground so when you get off the river put your boat on your shoulder and walk to your campsite! Live Music and food in the pavilion and vendors hawking their food and wares from beers to beef jerky and paddling boats and gear.
The canyon is creeky and is known as Surfer's Paradise. It is a small step up from the Lower Yough. If you are not comfortable on the LY or the East Race in a hard boat please contact the trip sponsor if you still want to kayak this river. Duckies are a good option if you are not comfortable in a hard boat but you will get a work out manuering rubber on this more technical stream.
Sponsor for this trip is Sharon Schierling sschierl@ND.edu
