Moonlight Paddle - Lake Powell, A Rare Natural Phenomena at Camp Helen State Park


Come and join the Rangers at Camp Helen State Park for a moonlight paddle on Lake Powell, Florida’s largest coastal dune lake. The experience will be a mostly quiet excursion led by Rangers and will give visitors a unique opportunity to view one of the rarest lakes in the world, while under a nearly full moon. The trip is approximately 2 hours and will begin with a brief safety review and interpretation on Lake Powell and why coastal dune lakes are such a rare natural phenomenon.  

Participants must be experienced paddlers and 12 years of age or older.
