Paddling

BALBOA SPILLWAY

A series of Hot Springs Village’s lakes drain into one another based on elevations. This could allow for leveraging excess of water in one lake to be used for another purpose such as whitewater in a spillway. In July of 2015, a kayak invitational was hosted on the Balboa Spillway with tremendous turnout and enthusiasm among the participants and audience. The event’s main purpose was to determine the feasibility of a whitewater park. Continue to check on the progress of the whitewater paddling and clinics in the near future.

WAYPOINT

Basecamp hosts several paddling events from Waypoint. These events range from Wine and Cheese paddle, Coffee paddle or just a lazy Sunday afternoon paddle. Kayaks and paddleboards can be rented by the hour.
For a full schedule of events, check out the Basecamp website.
