White's Park Boat Launch
200 White Park Road
Wallisville , TX
Julie C Hammond
This is an official Houston Canoe Club trip. You must have an up to date signed waiver on file with the club, or print and bring your own. If you are both an HCC and American Canoe Association member, no cost, otherwise $5. Please bring correct change for your trip facilitator. PFDs are required to be worn.
Paddle up to 12 miles (round trip) of meandering, narrow bayou – lots of beautiful, mostly green scenery. Expect it to be sunny, hot and humid, and come prepared to minimize interaction with some of the local wildlife (mosquitoes). Please bring a lunch. We will divide the trip in two paths coming back to the boat ramp for lunch at the picnic table then paddling out for the other path after lunch. Please bring plenty of water, hat, snacks and sunscreen. PFD is required.
To get to White's Park, head east on I10 from downtown Houston. It's about 45 miles from downtown to exit 812 (or 813 depending on whose directions you are following!) which is SH61. Exit and follow SH61 south (a right turn if you are heading east on I10) barely a quarter mile and look for the turn on your right to White's Park. Drive past the arenas until you see the narrow paved road off to your right that goes on down to the water and the boat ramp.
