About the event
Hoping all of this nice rain will make the north end of Cypress Lake fun to paddle! Let's enjoy some time on the water followed by lunch as Los Compas!
When: Sunday, 8/14/22 at 9 am (arrive by 9, plan to be on the water by 9:15 ish)
Where: Hwy 162 boat ramp on the north side of Cypress Lake - 3.5 miles east of Benton.
Google Map for launch: https://goo.gl/maps/dpW9WTzHHaX1Vpi27
Cost: no launch cost for non-motorized boats
Parking/amenities: Park at the boat ramp. The last time I looked there was a port-o-let but no other “facilities”.
Duration: This is an "out and back" paddle. I anticipate about 2 hours on the water total.
Difficulty: Easy/leisurely. We do occasionally run into obstacles (downed trees, etc) here but hopefully can navigate around those.
What to bring: The usual... Water, bug spray, sunscreen, PFD, paddle, boat...
Pets: Safe for pets
Other: Bring a small garbage bag, pickers and/or bucket if you're willing to help pick up/carry out any trash we run across.
After the paddle: I'm planning to do lunch as Los Compas Cantina in the Kingston Market Shopping Complex (5608 Hwy 3 Benton, LA) https://www.bing.com/maps?osid=beebbb94-eb18-4b1a-9336-d16a4a065e5f&cp=32.630592~-93.747553&lvl=16&v=2&sV=2&form=S00027
