Check out the NEW AWESOME schedule for Paddle for a Cause! Click HERE for INSTRUCTIONS, RULES & WAIVER.

We are excited to partner with Evan Young with Appalachian Boarding Company to host another amazing awesome day that's full of fun on-the-water activities!

Join us for our annual Paddle for a Cause cardboard boat, kayak, and paddle board race! Register today at www.unitedwayhdc.org. 100% of the proceeds are used to better our local community by supporting over 20 incredible causes that support Harrison & Doddridge County residents! All participants are required to bring their own life jackets (pfd), paddles, and helmets.

We welcome folks, whether they are racing or not, to come enjoy a "Community Float" on the lake.
