EVENT

WHEN:
DATE: 08/17/2024
TIME: 4:00pm-9:30pm (prompt start, estimated end)


DESCRIPTION: (Wear appropriate clothing & bring water!  Below are some special instructions: what to bring, relative difficulties, interesting features, and carpooling directions.)

Please email the leader (Rob McCue, e-rab101@comcast.net) to attend with any equipment needs and include your cell number.

We will paddle beautiful Union Lake in Millville, NJ, the largest lake in South Jersey and then watch the moon rise over the lake at twilight.

We will meet at the eastern launch area (39.406829, -75.051339) at 4 PM and launch from there by 4:30 PM. There are no restroom facilities there, so an alternative is the Wawa on the way into town from NJ Route 55. There is no shuttle.

As usual, we will start by paddling up the east side of the lake and into the moving water of Maurice River that feeds it, and proceed upstream as far as the participants want to go. Then we will return to the lake and paddle down the west side of the lake and stop for dinner and an optional swim at one of the beaches scattered around the lake. After dinner we will head out onto the lake again and watch the moon rise before heading back to the launch area.

For this trip, we typically paddle a total of seven or eight miles. Boats 10 to 14 feet long are best. This is a great trip on a moderately large, open body of water for those, including beginners, who are looking to experience a bit more challenge.

In addition to the usual hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and drinks, be sure to bring something portable for dinner, a white light (e.g. flashlight or headlamp) for your boat, and a light jacket.

Moonrise is 7:02 PM. Sunset is 7:55 PM.

Map and Directions

This is an 898-acre impoundment of the Maurice River that is almost three miles long and a mile wide at the widest point. There is a limit of ten horsepower on motorboats. The Maurice river, which feeds the lake, can also paddled at the north end of the lake. Adjacent to the eastern launch site is a free public sand beach and swimming area. The beach is very lightly used. There are also beaches on the western side of the lake which are good for lunch and swimming.
