This event is organized by Meetup Kayak Houston. You may have to be a member (no dues) to see the details.

As per the organizer:  This is an Advanced Only Skill Level paddle. We are going to attempt a paddle up stream on the Angelina River to the Army Corps of Engineers Campsites (# 5, 6, 7 & 8) from Martin Dies Jr. State Park. See Map and link below.

This is a "reconnaissance" paddle to evaluate and document the condition of the site(s) and amenities of the ACE campsites for use later in the year (October 20). Stronger paddlers and experienced primitive campers should have no problems with this run. Its in the middle of the week to avoid local boat traffic or crowding. Be prepared to spend one night at one of the campsites and paddle back down stream to the State Park. We may attempt to check the sites up stream on the Neches River as well.

If it doesn't go well, we'll round trip it back to the park and go home. I have the campsite reserved with ACE. I'm working out a parking arrangement/fee with the State Park to handle either scenario.
I plan to be at Martin Dies State Park by 10:00AM to give us enough time for scouting and making camp. We will not need to shuttle.

No one under 21 please. This Event maybe cancelled only for rain.

• What to bring
Primitive Camping Equipment and Paddling Safety Gear.

• Important to know
State Park has a fee for entry.
Its not a race, but this may be a physically challenging paddle. Link to Martin Dies Jr Park : https://goo.gl/maps/u25tnJP7VQB2
