NOTE: The launch location has been changed! The launch location has been changed so we no longer need to shuttle cars. We will end our trip at the launch location. Because we do not need to shuttle cars, the gathering time has been moved back to 5:30 (launch at 6:00).
The new launch location is:
362 Michigan St.
Oshkosh, WI 54902
This is small park with restrooms and an ADA compliant kayak/canoe launch. Extra parking is available on Michigan St., if needed.
July 23: 362 Michigan St, Oshkosh
Challenges: Distance. Power boat traffic. Darkness.
Meet: After 5:30 PM at 362 Michigan St, Oshkosh, WI 54902
Launch: 6:00 PM;
Land: At the launch location. Restrooms available.
Fee: $15 per adult. Under age 16, free with an adult. Fee covers ACA event insurance and marketing costs. No one is paid; proceeds support NEWP programs and equipment.
- All participants must wear a personal flotation device (PFD or lifejacket) at all times while on the water.
- No alcoholic beverages are allowed on the paddle or during lunch stops.
Members of NEWP can arrange to borrow a boat by contacting a member of the Board. Several boat rental businesses operate in the region.
Oshkosh admittedly has been neglected in NEWP’s past paddle schedule. In 2021 we are looking forward to an evening paddle that will take us through the bright lights of downtown Oshkosh. YOU MUST HAVE A WHITE LIGHT AVAILABLE TO DISPLAY IN PRESENCE OF MOTORBOAT TRAFFIC. Or this is the chance to light up your boat like a Christmas tree.
This paddle trip will be an out-and-back round trip from the park at 362 Michigan St, instead of a one-way trip to avoid shuttling.
