Recreational: we paddle to the Refuge Headquarters/Visitor Center – approximately 7 miles – taking about 3 -4 hours. Water is calm and through woods and open areas. Shuttle is required. There is a fee at both ends of the trip. Brumbley Park (302 684-5189) charges $4.00 per boat to put in. Turn into the park and take the gravel drive to the left behind the store (a box is on the left to receive fees) to the kayak launch. Prime Hook charges $1.00 per boat, but there is no entrance fee to the Refuge. Bring exact amounts, as no change is made.
Difficulty & Must Haves:
Note that there are no stopping or resting areas along the stream. We will eat lunch at the Refuge Visitors Center. The NWR limits visitors to the main channel so as to minimize disturbance of wildlife.
Nice to Have & Human Interest:
The trip should be a pleasantly memorable one. There is no threat of power boats. This trip is fine for beginners.
Additional Notes & Shuttle Info:
Bathroom facilities are available at Brumbley Park and at the Refuge Visitor Center. Shuttle is required. Put-in at Brumbley Park and takeout at the Refuge Visitor Center.
