Paddling Clubs

                   Central Iowa Paddlers on the Middle Raccoon River in Panora, Iowa

Paddling clubs and organizations are a great resource for paddlers, regardless of the type of paddling you do or skill level. Meet other paddlers, join groups on various outings and even lead your own trips. Many paddling clubs have river clean-ups that they organize and occasionally travel outside of Iowa for paddling adventures. Stay connected and plug into a paddling club near you!

**Delaware County Kayakers is an informal group of people who enjoy getting out and paddling the local rivers. They are mostly based out of Manchester, Iowa, where the Maquoketa is the home river, but they do travel to local rivers such as the Yellow, Turkey, Volga, Wapsi, Cedar and local creeks. Most enjoy relaxed float trips in the summer but some do paddle year round. Anyone can join this informal group and come paddle. Contacts: Hannah Eden 319-899-4936 or or Sam Childs 563-213-0839
