Learn to Kayak

Summer is here and it's the perfect time to get out on the water. The Smith River, Beaver Creek Reservoir, and Philpott Lake are all excellent places to paddle in the Martinsville & Henry County area. We urge that everyone uses their good judgement and practice safe paddling skills while enjoying the river.

To learn how to paddle or improve your skills, please join Eric Juday of the American Canoe Association as he presents beginner and intermediate kayaking classes this July.

The Intermediate class will be held on July 26th from 8am -3pm at the Smith River in Ridgeway. The course fee is $55. Prior paddling experience is required to take this course.
