Join us for a slow paced paddle through the Champion Lake area.  this is part of the Trinity River National Wildlife Refuge.  It features a large cypress swamp and much needed shade, but do bring plenty of drinking water and sun protection.  Distance paddled less than 7 miles and we hope to be back to the putin location at the fishing pier by 1 pm.

For your own personal map of the lake area, follow this link:  https://www.fws.gov/uploadedFiles/2018.DayUseArea.ChampionLake.HuntMap.Website.pdf

The usual Houston Canoe Club rules apply, must wear your PFD, and have up to date waiver on file or print one and bring it.  If you are not a current ACA member you will have to also pay a $5 ACA insurance fee.  Please bring your ACA card with you if we don't have your ACA number on file.

You might want an on-the-water or after paddle snack.  There is no vending in this area, but thankfully a new flush toilet facility has been installed at the top of the hill.  Yeah!

Any questions, please contact me (Natalie Wiest) email or by cell 832 561 3646
