Please join us for our traditional WCA Canada Day summer weekend at Palmer Rapids on the Madawaska River. You can stay at Jessup's campsite right on the river at the rapids. This is an enjoyable weekend for both novice and experienced white water paddlers and an opportunity to meet WCA members and plan trips. Probably more people have had their first taste of moving water here than in any other spot in Ontario. There are a couple of sets of Class 1-3 rapids almost outside your tent door. Bill Ness and other seasoned WCA members will provide informal paddling pointers to new river runners.
This is a lovely trip for families. There's a sandy beach where the kids can play or swim. For those who aren't into paddling, there are restaurants and shops nearby in Wilno and Barry's Bay.
Most will camp from Friday evening to Sunday but you can come & go at any time.
Bring canoes or kayak suitable for whitewater along with a helmet, PFD and paddle. Canoes and kayaks can be rented nearby at Paddler Co-op (www.paddlerco-op.com), or from Madawaska River Rentals (www.MadRiverRentals.ca). If renting, tell them you want thigh straps in the canoe. If you do not have a canoe you can likely share with other members.
On Sunday, depending on the weather and water levels, those with some experience will likely take a run down the Lower Madawaska.
On Saturday evening for those wanting a break from camp cooking we’ll enjoy the Polish buffet at the famous Wilno Tavern: www.wilnotavern.com
Subsequent to June 14 send your email address directly to tb@beakbane.com so I can give you access to a Google spreadsheet to coordinate shared equipment and carpooling.

How to Get There
Event Directions: 

https://goo.gl/maps/yt3CLnFEJKdCSL2GA
Direction to Palmers Rapids & Jessup’s Camp Ground:
♣ From Peterborough - go north up Hwy 28 to Bancroft.
♣ In Bancroft, turn left on Hwy 62 thought Maynooth and Combermere.
♣ In Combermere, just over the bridge turn right on Hwy 515.
♣ Just after you cross over the river again on your right you will see a local road (River Bend Road) turn right here --the river is on your immediate right.
♣ The road goes more or less straight.
♣ When it makes a sharp turn to the left, there should be a one lane dirt driveway straight in front of you. You will see a wooden sign with a teepee and canoe in orange paint.
♣ Go up the low hill and drive along until you come to the campground.
♣ If you actually get into the village of Palmer Rapids, you've gone too far along 515, so just turn around, go back..
♣ The address of the campground is 266 River Bend Road.
