Canoeing The Shenandoah River Weekend

If you like outdoor activities then you'll really like a peaceful trip down the Shenandoah River in a canoe or kayak. It's especially fun if that trip is with 40 or more gay campers and gay friendly people going down the river with you. Join us for a large canoe and kayak gathering on the river on Saturday July, 19th. We have made arrangements for Down River Canoe Co. to pick us up from the campsite and take us up river for a 2 - 3 hour journey back to our campsite. Down River will then pick-up their rental equipment at the end of the day at our campsite. How easy peazy is that!

This is a No Frills and lots of thrills camping weekend. Your camping fees DO NOT INCLUDE canoe or kayak rentals at Down River Co.. You must also sign-up for the Canoe Trip Event in addition to signing up for this camping trip. Signing up for the Canoe Trip Event guarantees you a canoe or kayak reservation for Saturday July 19th. Canoe and kayak rental fees are payable to Down River Canoe Co. and not OutCamping. Remember to bring everything you will want for a comfortable camping weekend

The cost for this camping trip is $40 per person for the weekend.

We will be camping at campsite #9 "The Ledge"
