Kayaking Courses Available At Kramper Lake This Weekend

HUBBARD – If you didn’t get a chance to make it out to Kramper Lake on the 4th of July, there’ll be plenty of opportunities to visit throughout the month.

A beginner’s fishing clinic was held Thursday morning at the Danish Alps State Recreation Area and the lake located near Hubbard will feature the introduction of kayaking courses Friday.

Pre Register at the entry booth for $15 per Nebraska Game & Parks kayak retail or free if using your own kayak. Courses will last from 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. and again from 2 – 3:30 p.m.

Participants will learn the basic skills of kayaking on Kramper Lake where they’ll be able to fine-tune their kayaking skills while touring the lake and viewing wildlife. Kayaks will be provided for a maximum of 10 people per session (three single and five double kayaks will be available on first come, first serve).

For more of the advanced kayakers, advanced courses are scheduled for Saturday, July 6 from 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. as well as 2 until 3:30 p.m.

Whether you have attended the introductory course or are experienced and would like to pick up some more tricks or ideas, this course is for you. Some more complicated techniques, different kayaking gear for fishing or camping, as well as paddling to their kayak-in campsites will be on the agenda.

Introduction to archery is scheduled for Saturday, July 13 from 10 a.m. until noon and a ‘wetland wander’ session will take place on Saturday, July 20 at 11 a.m.
