Chevelon Canyon Lake Kayaking :stretch:

What a memorable trip... Unfortunately, both good and bad. All of the terrible stories you hear about people packing boats down to the lake are true. Humping two 14-foot touring kayaks in and out of that canyon was brutal. I doubt that I will ever do it again. The good news is that our efforts were rewarded with total solitude on a beautiful crystal clear high country lake that happens to be one of the best trout fisheries in the state.

Chevelon Canyon Lake is a fairly large body of water with a total length of 2.7 miles and about 7.0 miles of shoreline. We had it all to ourselves! I should remind that this was on a Saturday. The price of admission is high but the experience is like nothing in the state. A part of me wishes that I could just drive down to the lake and skip the painful hike. In all honesty that terrible hike is the only thing that keeps this lake from becoming just like every other overcrowded lake on the rim. Kayaking or canoeing Chevelon Canyon Lake is something that paddling enthusiasts should do at least once in their life.
