212 Spruce Grove Rd
Kirkwood, PA 17536
Recreational: the Reservoir is owned by the Chester Water Authority. Power boats are limited. Patrons are charged $5.30 per boat for use. The launch is convenient. Paddles are out and back.
Difficulty & Must Haves:
The paddle is open flat water to the left (east) of the put-in. During summer and fall (non-nesting season), go right and under the bridge and paddle upstream until shallows encumber progress.
Nice to Have & Human Interest:
The trip should be a pleasantly memorable one. The reservoir and upstream reach are both beautiful and an avian paradise. There is no threat of power boats. This trip is fine for beginners.
Additional Notes & Shuttle Info:
The paddle is out and back. We’ll paddle for several hours and then probably do lunch at the launch point before doing an afternoon session. Bathroom facilities are available, but disgusting.
