National Canoe Day

West Virginia’s state parks and forests are a great place to enjoy a day out on the water. Beech Fork State Park has an affordable selection of canoes and kayaks available to rent if you don’t have one of your own.

The Beech Fork Creek Group Paddle will start at 4:30 p.m. and participants should meet at the Beech Fork State Park boat launch by 4:00 p.m. to catch a shuttle to the start site.

The Beech Fork 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 for the Beech Fork event is recommended to assure room on the shuttle. Participants should sign up at Beech Fork State Park headquarters by calling 304-528-5794 or by sending an email to [email protected]
