“5th Annual Crossing the Delaware” paddle scheduled for April 22.

Join brother and sister team Sam Childs and Hannah Childs for all or part of a 40 mile paddle on the scenic Maquoketa River in Delaware County. Not up for over 40 miles of paddling in one day? Just choose your favorite paddling section.

Put-in at 7:00 am at Joy Springs Park west of Strawberry Point. Take out and finish time TBD, based on water, weather, and daylight. Plan to go as far as “paddleable” down the Maquoketa River or to Hoeger’s Bridge (Pioneer Road Access) south of Delhi off Hwy 38, whichever comes first.

Hannah says, “A typical day is 10-14 hours of paddling. Approximate distance from Joy Springs to Hoeger’s Bridge is 43 river miles. Current water level the day of the paddle will affect how far up we can put in. This will be determined the evening before the paddle as river levels fluctuate.”

Plan A: Meet at the put in or any put in of your choice and paddle down the river. Set your own shuttle, paddle your own equipment, bring your own lunch, no cost, just join us on the river!

Plan B: We will provide the shuttle and lunch on the river for $25.00 per person. Must have all your own paddling equipment.

Please let us know you’re coming (Plan A or B) so we can get a general count of how many paddlers to expect. Plan B participants must RSVP by April 14th, so we can get the shuttle and food rounded up.
