If you are coming, please RSVP on NSPN calendar. If no luck send me a PM.


Here’s the dealio.  When you arrive to the campground, proceed to the Manager’s house (not office by the entrance) at the northerly corner of the campground.  Drive straight down the hill and take your first left.  Her house is weathered shingle as you turn the corner.  Register and pay the fee and indicate which paddling group (MITA/SMSKN/NSPN) you have signed up with.  You are likely to find a private site if you do not want to be at the group site.  To save time, suggest dropping off your boat and paddling gear at the NE corner of the campground, on the grass near the beach, to the right of the “path” (take L coming out of Manager’s driveway, and drive all the way straight to launch area).  After setting up your tent in the group area, please park your cars “side-by-each” across from the group entrance.  For a schematic of the campground: http://lobsterbuoycampsites.wixsite.com/lobsterbuoycampsites/site-map


A pot luck is planned for Friday nite for those who want to participate.


For early arrivers on Friday, there will likely be a short trip launching between 1 and 2 o’clock.

Volunteers needed for planning and leading trips (Level 2 and above); please post here.


Trip option for Sat. led by by Kyle Martin:

Georges Islands. Paddle this beautiful chain of islands just outside of Port Clyde.  This paddle never disappoints. Paddle to historic Benner and Allen islands once home to Andrew Wyeth, the artist.  Lunch can be had on Burnt island which is MITA. An excellent opportunity for those who have paddled the Muscle Ridge many times or may just have to enjoy some of the other spectacular treasures of the area. Numerous parking options in Port Clyde at the Monhegan boat line and town landing. This is a level 3 trip.  Limit:  12 paddlers.  RSVP to:  kyle.martin.8080@gmail.com
