Hosmer Lake Kayak/SUP Outing Group #1
July 30 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
Organizer: Donna Eads (541)643-8797
This is a Kayak/SUP outing to Hosmer Lake. There are no rentals at this lake. You must bring your own kayak/SUP. We will meet at the boat launch area.
This is a beautiful little lake, with a channel where you can see large trout and water lilies. You can venture around the lake, and also take a trip up a small stream to a little waterfall, which is a great stopping point for a snack before heading back for a fun little downstream ride.
To get to the boat launch at Hosmer, go beyond Elk Lake and then take a left on Elk Lake loop. DO NOT TAKE the first Elk Lake Loop, but the the one past (south) of the Elk Lake Resort. Also known as Forest Road 4525. There is a Hosmer Lake Sign as well.
Go to the boat launch area to unload, and then park. You will need a FOREST SERVICE PARKING PASS and a WATERWAY ACCESS PERMIT if your kayak/SUP is 10′ or longer. You will also need a PFD and a WHISTLE. There is a restroom near the parking lot.
Please be ready to launch by 8 am. We want to get launched early before the crowds arrive.
Bring water, snack, sunscreen, hat, and dress for the weather. We will paddle for a couple of hours, making the trek to the waterfall if interested.
Event will be cancelled for rain. (The weather forecast is for a nice warm sunny day.)
