This year's Family Friendly Float Trip is scheduled for Saturday, June 15. We will float from the Sugar Creek Campground to the Sugar Creek Public Fishing area on Offield Monument Rd..
As always, we have set aside 15 free canoes and a few kayaks for participants who don't have their own. We will give a safety talk at the beginning and use designated leaders and sweepers to help make sure that you and your family have a safe and enjoyable trip.
