Wappinger Lake, NY
8 July 2006

Looking for a new place to paddle we thought we would try a place we drove over many times in our car.  Wappinger Lake/Creek on Route 9.

We found a public boat launch and went for it.  The lake itself has many very shallow areas and the creek (under the Route 9 bridge) was very scenic.

All in all a very pleasant paddle day.
