“Great place to launch your kayak”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

We go here often to spend a day on the water in our kayaks. They ask for a $5 donation to use their launch site and for the most part, the water is boat free and very quiet. We typically launch on the South River which can be a nightmare during the summer so this is a very nice and relaxing break.
