Beech Fork State Park to host National Canoe Day paddle

BARBOURSVILLE, W.Va. — Beech Fork State Park is celebrating National Canoe Day by offering a group paddle through Beech Fork Creek on June 26.

This special event will start at 4:30 p.m. Participants should meet at the Beech Fork State Park boat launch by 4 p.m. to catch a shuttle to the start site. The park naturalist will lead the paddle for the return to the boat dock.

The trip is approximately three miles and will last about two hours. Wildlife and special habitats will be observed along the way. Paddlers should wear comfortable, weather-appropriate clothing and sun screen. Guests may bring a canoe and kayak of their own or rent one at the park.

Preregistration is suggested to assure room on the shuttle. Sign up at Beech Fork State Park headquarters, by calling 304-528-5794 or by sending an email to [email protected]
