Outing Leaders: Tim & Renee Shindele and Carleigh and Seth Felker

We will be camping, as usual, at the Beavertail Campground 10 miles belowSherar’s Falls. The campground is halfway between Lone Pine Put-in and Mack’s Canyon Campground. On Saturday, folks can float from Lone Pine down to Beavertail or from Beavertail down to Mack’s. And vice versa on Sunday.

There are tons of places to bank-fish along the road.  Go online to purchase an Oregon fishing license and a Deschutes River Floaters Pass (if you are going to float the river); there will be a campground fee as well.

The outings fee is $25.  NFA will provide all the meals for the weekend from Saturday breakfast through Sunday lunch. Bring your own beer, wine, and hard stuff.
