Paddle from Meeks Bay to D.L. Bliss

Meeks Bay Campground - Search Nearby - Added by Brian Walker

Distance: 6.6 miles roundtrip. Crystal clear water. Great exercise. Long, simple paddle.

The water at Meeks Bay is perfectly crystal clear, a mix of different blues and greens – you can see the bottom floor in most places. Hug the buoy line to have a clear view to the lake's bottom, or cruise the dark blue waters where the lake falls off from 20ft deep to some of its deepest levels of 1,645 ft.

This is perfect for a morning paddle, a lunchtime trip, or a sunset cruise, and works great for the whole family.

Getting there: Park at Meeks Bay campground ($8 per vehicle for the day) and cruise on down to the beautiful D.L. Bliss State Park.
