DNR launch sites around here have had loaners out for a couple of years now but they are the cheapo $5 ones.

I can highly recommend paddling the Halfmoon chain in Pinckney Rec Area. 20 miles if you circumnavigate to Hell and back, and some areas have no houses visible so its about as “up north” as you can get around here. Avoid summer weekends.

There’s always a couple available at the Port of Cross Village.

At all of the Sonoma County California parks with access to the Russian River there are free loaners provided by the county at stations manned by volunteers May to October. Great program. :wink:
