Refine your creeking skills from the author of the Creeking Bible!

(Registration Deadline—April 17, 2016)

Appalachian Paddling Enthusiasts (APEs) is pleased to announce another of its Paddle with the Pros clinics, this time by hosting an Advanced Creeking Clinic with Leland Davis.  Leland has been teaching people to kayak for over 20 years.  In 2005, he became one of the first instructors to offer creeking-specific clinics, and he has since lead creeking clinics and adventure paddling trips across the US, in Mexico, and in Chile.  He’s the author of two whitewater guidebooks, ‘The River Gypsies’ Guide to North America’ and ‘North Carolina Rivers & Creeks,” and was the original founder of the Green River Race.

This one day course is designed for the aspiring advanced level creek boater.  Previous creeking experience, class 4 or higher proficiency and a solid roll are required.  The course will take place on a river similar to the Watauga in difficulty and specific location will be determined as we get closer to the date.  The class will be limited to 8 students.  If you’re a creek boater looking to up his or her game this is your chance!  Send in your registration form and payment to take advantage of this outstanding and rare opportunity to learn from one of the world’s best.

COURSE OBJECTIVES: Development and refinement of skills that will allow participants to increase their competency and comfort on class 4/5 creeks.

COURSE PREREQUISITES: Students should be proficient in class 4 whitewater and have a solid roll.  Participants should be in good health and overall fitness and possess solid swimming ability.  Minors must be accompanied by parent or guardian.

Contribute to Secure Access to Watauga River at Guy Ford Road

Watauga River Access at Guy Ford Road Issue:

The parking area to access the Watauga River at Guy Ford Road is privately owned. This means we could lose access at any time. We have been working to purchase the 2.3 acre property on the downstream river left side of Guy Ford for about 2 years. This is about to come to fruition, securing a permanent public access to the river.

This site provides a put-in to the Watauga Gorge section of the river below Guy Ford Road, as well as a take-out point for Section 3.  In addition, this property will provide river access for fishing, swimming, picnicking, and other activities for residents and visitors alike.

APEs 4th of July Watauga Run & Campout

APE's LogoMark Your Calendars for the 4th of July Weekend (July 3-5, 2015)

Come camp and paddle with us on Friday & Saturday night and stay down on the cool banks of the Watauga River!

Normally the lake is backed up to this campground with flat still water. But with the lake down it flows fast and cold just like the upper part of the river right by this campground.
