Stay To The Right
Never paddle in the middle of the lake.
Stay to the right side of lake, just like automobile traffic.
Wait for faster moving traffic to pass before crossing the lake.
In unsafe weather conditions, we will close the dock or halt rentals until it is safe again.
No watercraft may launch during lightning or thunder, or if fog is too dense to clearly see the opposite shore.
If caught in a storm seek the shoreline and find shelter immediately.
Paddle into the wind heading out, and with the wind to return.
If you're having difficulty, paddle closer to the shore as trees help block the wind. If on a SUP, lie on stomach or knees and paddle to safety.
AVOID ROWING SHELLS
Kayaks, Canoes and SUPs must yield to rowers. Always be aware of rowing shells and coaching launches. Move toward the shore when being passed. Stay clear.
