Camping and Paddling June 13th – 15th

Our outdoor recreation ministry is looking forward to camping and paddling June 13-15. Come
for a few hours or the entire three days. We have secured two group campsites at a great
location. This annual trip has been a popular tradition at Hope. Here are the exciting details:

  • It’s at Interstate State park in Taylors Falls, MN. We’ve reserved two group campsites for up
    to 35 people on each. This park is less than an hour from the metro area.
  • It will be on the nights of June 13 and 14…come one or both nights. Camping fee is paid for
    by ULCH. Contact Bryan or Alden to reserve a spot. The campsite is on the banks of the St. Croix River
  • The plan is for two paddling events … a longer trip for those arriving Thursday or early Friday. It’s from Osceola to Wm O’Brien
    on Friday morning (lasting about 4 hours). That start time will be determined once we know who is coming. Boats are available
    for rental. Instructions for renting boats are below.
  • We also will offer the usual easy trip (about 2 hours) for those interested in arriving Friday night or early Saturday morning. It
    will start Saturday morning at 9:00 at Interstate Park and end at the Osceola bridge.
  • For anyone interested there’s great hiking and biking options in this park and vicinity.
  • RV camping is also an option. Those interested in RV sites may call the MN DNR camping reservation line or go online for site
  • There will be informal campsite meals. They will be Thursday supper through Saturday breakfast.
  • Group restaurant meal or picnic at the park Saturday afternoon at about 1:00. Details on this to be determined.
  • For Boat rental contact Taylor’s Falls Canoe and Kayak Rental
  • If you’re interested and have more questions talk to or message
    Bryan Kufus at 612-685-0402 or Alden Tetlie at 651-402-2344.
