One of the wonderful features of this event is a stop for lunch on the shores of the Peace River. Halfway through your adventure, you will be treated to a complimentary lunch at the Strong Creek Campground. 

Watch for our event volunteers, on your left-hand side as you approach the rest area. Please bring your vessel over to the side of the river and join us for a delicious lunch and socializing with your fellow paddlers. Please keep pets on a leash at all times when not in your craft. Paddlers are welcome to head back out onto the river whenever they are done their meal, though you will be to be back on the water by 2:00 pm in order to complete your adventure on time!


While we understand the attraction of being able to stop along the way, for the safety of our participants and volunteers, please do not stop unless it is an emergency.
