Kayaking at Mickler's Landing

For those looking for a little more adventure, get out on the ocean for an active kayak workout.

The easiest place to launch is Mickler’s Beachfront Landing. Parking is plentiful and there’s a picnic pavilion and restrooms available.

This area provides a gradual shoreline and waves are typically moderate which makes launching easier. It’s easiest to wade knee-deep and position your kayak directly into the oncoming waves before getting in.
