The event features kayak tours to the campground, live local music by “Monahan, Martin, & Sleep,” a raffle with great prizes and a whole lot of fun. Rain or Shine! (707) 498-1130 [email protected] for more information.
The Stone Lagoon Primitive Campground has been closed for two years. These are Humboldt County’s only boat-in/hike-in campsites and with just a little help it can be reopened in spring of 2014.
Elk Country RV (at the Little Red School House) will hold a simultaneous event featuring a barbecue, kids’ events, demonstrations and discount camping all weekend, making it a Stone Lagoon neighborhood party!
If you have your own kayak, SUP or row boat please visit Stone Lagoon that day or donate anytime via PayPal at explorenorthcoast.net
Kayak Tours are $35 per person donation and will launch at 10 a.m. noon and 2 p.m. Reserve in advance or sign up that day.
Bring a change of clothes and wear shoes that can get wet. Wet suits, booties and splash jackets are also available to rent. Life jackets are included with the tours.
If kayaking is not your thing, you can still enjoy the event with live music and prizes here and other events across the road at Elk Country RV.
LBJ Enterprises will provide bird-watching expertise and the Humboldt Bay Sea Scouts are hosting a booth. Monahan, Martin and Sleep will play all afternoon and have invited some musical friends to join them.
Raffle prizes are being drawn at 11:45 a.m. 1:45 p.m. and 3:45 p.m. In the event of foul weather all activities will move to the Event Barn at Elk Country RV. Event will be held rain or shine.
