Join the Lehigh Valley Kayak and Canoe Club for a Thursday late morning/early afternoon paddle on Beltzville Lake. We will paddle from Preachers Camp Launch to Wild Creek Falls. Conditions permitting we will put our boats ashore and have lunch and a walk to the falls. Then we’ll return to Preachers Camp. Note this is on the eastern end of the lake and the whole area is a no-wake zone. It is usually very quiet.
There is a launch ramp and dock and a gravel beach for kayak and canoe launching. Bathrooms are on site.
