Full Moon Paddle on Lake Natoma    $39
                 
Join us for a relaxing paddle while we watch the moon rise over the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Stars and moon shimmer with every dip of the paddle in the mirror like surface of the lake, as night herons, beaver, and paddlers become a part of the night sky. CCK has special permission from the State Park service allowing us to stay on the water after normal park hours. CCK provides all the paddling equipment.
