    This is a fun weekend of camping and paddling in Newaygo County.   Join us at the beautiful Sandy Beach campground at Hardy Dam.  We will take a 4 hour canoe/kayak trip down the Muskegon River on Saturday (through Wisners if renting) followed up with potluck, will enjoy bonfires both Friday and Saturday nights, and hang out at the beach on Sunday.  Feel free to bring your water toys (boats, rafts, kayaks, etc.) for Sunday.  If you prefer to just go canoeing/kayaking on Saturday, that is OK too.  

    Registration of $10/members or $15/non-members provides two breakfasts and meat for Saturday night potluck.  

    The Club has reserved three cabins available first paid/first served at a weekend price of $35/per person based on 4/cabin (two bunk beds with mini-fridge & microwave; no bathroom or sink – you need to bring your own bedding, towels, etc.).  You may also reserve a campsite online here: online reservation  and click on Sandy Beach.
