At North Bend State Park in West Virginia, beginning paddlers can choose a kayak, canoe, or both as part of the Quest program.
The Park's Quest program will continue offering kayak or canoe adventures on North Bend Lake into September.
“The Quest program caught the attention of many people this summer,” said North Bend State Park Supt. Steve Jones. “By far, the most requested activity was learning how to use a kayak or a canoe.”
Quest rates have been reduced to encourage mid-week fall bookings. Two people can stay overnight at North Bend Lodge Sunday through Thursday and have use of a kayak or canoe with instruction.
The 305-acre North Bend Lake is quiet and a perfect setting to enjoy a September getaway, according to Park officials.
The park also features an October mid-week reduced lodge rate for travelers “leaf peeping” in the Ritchie county area.
