Come Have Fun Kayaking at Lake Charlotte
Have fun kayaking on urban waterways with other paddlers who have taken our Level 1 Kayaking Class and have joined ABC Houston. We’ll conduct a short briefing of the Level 1 waters to be travelled, a safety meeting and then on-the-water! We will paddle about 2 hours. If there is a weather event, signees will be contacted as soon as possible.
Bring your own kayak if you have one. The boating club has six (6) kayaks to use, first come, first served (everything is included). Some rendezvous spots have rentals. Remember your life jacket, a sound producing device, a visual signaling device, a small first aid kid, snacks and water! Lunch is by individual, or the group can elect to find a local eatery to continue the fun. Contact Cathy Leavitt (phone number above) with any questions.
If you are new to the program, America’s Boating Club Houston will provide a short but complete vessel safety examination of your paddle craft. We will look specifically for the required safety equipment. We will also supply identification stickers for your craft if you don’t currently have one!
Learn more or sign up for the basic kayaking course if you have an interest.

From Houston, drive east on I-10 to exit #810. Turn north on Route 563 and drive for 2.9 miles to Lake Charlotte Rd. There is a road sign on the left, but it’s hard to see because of the orientation of the sign. The landmark to look for is a sign for a Xmas tree farm. Turn left and go 1.1 miles west on Lake Charlotte Rd. Cedar Hill Park does not have a sign at the road. So how do you know when you’re there? Good question. If you get to the 90-degree right bend in the road, you’ve gone too far. The other driveways along the road have mailboxes on them, as they are residences. The Cedar Hill Park dirt entrance road does not have a mailbox, and it’s across the street from a small cemetery. Once you enter that dirt park road and curve around a corner, then you finally see a park sign.
