LAZY DAY TRIP
6-8 hours $50/canoe $45/kayak
The trip begins at the North Frewsburg launch site. This portion of the Conewango is part of the Marden E. Cobb Waterway Trail which meanders through forest and farmland. It is not only remote but also peaceful. Even thought the water is slow, the deepest spot you go over is 52 feet deep. A perfect spot to stop for a lunch, which is also your half-way point, is Clam Island. Please see Clam Island Trip for more information.
THE ROCKIN’ RUN
4-5 hours $40/canoe $35/kayak
The launch site is directly off Route 60 heading into the village of Frewsburg. This trip entails all of the features of the Lazy Day Trip,including Clam Island.
3 hours 3 miles $35/canoe $30/kayak
We launch the boats and you paddle north for approximately 15 to 20 minutes. A dock is located on the west side for access to the island. A picnic table and facilites are available on first come first serve basis. Clam Island originates from the history of the Native Americans who once inhabited the area and harvisted shell fish from the creek. The shells are strewn across the island, hence the name! You can get out and explore the island or paddle around it. When you are finished, you paddle south until you reach CKC.
2 hours 2 miles $30/canoe $25/kayak
This trip beings at the NY PA launch site. Because it’s a short and easy trip back to CKC, this trip is recommended for families with children, beginners, and people with limited time. The Marden E. Cobb Waterway Trail connects to the Conewango Creek Waterway Trail at this launch site.
BY THE HOUR
As long as you want (minimum charge is 1 hour) $12/canoe $10/kayak
Not sure if kayaking or canoing is for you? Take an hour take a few, test it out and see if it’s for you! We launch your boat here at CKC, and you paddle either north or south for as long as you’d like. When you are ready, just paddle back to CKC.
The following trips are all launched from CKC, and you paddle to the destination point. You will be going past houses and will be able to hear traffic from time to time. All of the life vests have our telephone number. So when you reach your destination, just call and we will pick you up.
The geography of the creek dramatically changes after the Russell launch site, and the banks change from clay to rock. The creek becomes quiet shallow in certains spots, and you may have to walk your boat if it’s too low. Therefore, these trips are available depending on water conditions. You are also going to paddle through class 1 rapids, which means that the water is moving quicker and can be rough. We do not recommend these trips for beginners or families with young children.
BRINGING YOUR OWN KAYAK/CANOE
We provide a shuttle service for people who bring their own boats. However, there is a $15 charge per boat.
