12:00noon: Anything That Floats!!
Join us at 12:00 p.m. at the boat launch. Bring literally anything that floats! You can boat on: air mattress, barrels, inflatables, duct tape and cardboard boats, kayaks, canoes, standup paddle boards, etc. We’ll launch from the boat dock for some water fun. Wear ridiculous outfits, and enjoy the day on the water. Standard life jacket laws still apply. Children 12 and under must have a life jacket on at all times in the boat, children 13 and older (and adults) must at least have a life jacket in the craft.

More Fun!
SUNDAY, September 3, 2023
Let’s say goodbye to Summer with a Bicycle Parade! Bring your bike, your kids in the stroller or wagon and yourself! All ages are welcome. Decorate your bike before you come and let’s have a “Goodbye to Summer Parade” around parts of the Exercise Loop, Moxley and Old Orchard. The parade route will be about 1.25 miles. Wear your helmets because WV Bicycle Helmet Regulations will be in effect. Please decorate your bike prior to coming to the parade, but we will also have some decorations available at 1:00pm, if you need them. Meet at the parking lot outside Camper’s Corner Store, at the administrative building. (length – about one hour)
