Trip Description:

Islet Lake is a great local gem that has an easy launch site and facilities such as picnic tables, barbecue pits, an enclosed building for shelter, and outhouses.  We'll paddle the lake from end to end (a bit more than an hour) and then head back to the parking lot and picnic area for lunch and/or fire.

There will be opportunity for more paddling or skills development. Expect to see lots of ducks, geese, Franklin's gulls, etc.
