May 24 PALMERFEST Palmer Rapids Weekend

May 19 - May 21

Spend May 24 camping at Palmer Rapids this year for PALMERFEST!  A great place for beginner and novice paddlers.  Palmer Rapids has a little bit of everything for everyone.  KWP members usually make this the home-base during the weekend with day trips to other surrounding rivers like Lower Madawaska, Ottawa River or MKC section. Others stay and enjoy the easy paddling at Palmer great for kids and those that don’t paddle.  Always a good KWP Members turnout.

The main festival takes place at the Paddler-Coop. There is live music, food, campfires, and of course paddling the rapids there. Enjoy the May 24 weekend on the MAD! This section of the river is good for beginners, and also has a nice beach. Watch this event page for camping details.

Ability: Beginner, Novice, Intermediate and Advanced
