There’s always something happening at Lake Red Rock. Check out these upcoming activities:

Friday, July 26

7 p.m., Geocaching at Whitebreast Campground. Meet in the parking lot next to the fee booth at campground’s entrance. You’re never too old for hide-and-seek. Have some fun and give geocaching a try! This sport uses the technology of GPS to hunt for caches hidden in an area. Bring your own GPS unit or borrow one from us. Learn some of the basics, then try it on your own anywhere you travel.

Saturday, July 27

9 a.m., Pond Exploration at the Playscape (near the North Overlook Beach). Go “mucking” at one of the lake area’s wetlands. Dip nets and tubs will be available for you to try and catch some of the critters swimming and crawling in and around the area. Mucking can be messy, so please wear old shoes and clothes.

10 a.m., Meet Bobber, the Water Safety Dog at Howell Station Campground. Bobber is a fun-loving pup that likes to meet new people and help them learn how to be safe around the water. Come meet him and pick up some great safety tips.

2 p.m., Owl Puke Investigation at the Red Rock Visitor Center. Take a closer look at what owls leave behind after they eat. You’ll get your own owl pellet to dissect. Search through the bones to figure out what critter became its last meal.

Friday, Aug. 2

5:30–7:30 p.m., Paddle to Hickory Ridge (preregistration required) at Whitebreast Campground. Join us for a leisurely paddle to the Hickory Ridge Wilderness Campground. Bring your own kayak or borrow one from us free of charge. A limited number of kayaks are available, so pre-registration is needed if you want to borrow one. Must be at least 16 years old to borrow kayaks for the activity, and adults must accompany minors. Activity may be canceled if inclement weather/lake conditions.
