  • Our shorelines are fragile ecosystems, so please restrict launching and landing to designated areas only.
  • Plan ahead and let someone know your paddling agenda.
  • Leave No Trace. No littering or dumping of trash or personal items. Dispose of your waste in the provided receptacles at designated launch sites.
  • Do not disturb natural or cultural resources including wildlife.
  • Respect private property. Do not trespass unless in an emergency situation.
  • No camping allowed so plan your trip ahead of time.
  • Take turns and be respectful when launching at any access site.
