Appleton Locks Paddle

Aug. 1: Lutz Park in Appleton to Sunset Park in Kimberly

We finally got the hint from Mother Nature and scheduled this paddle earlier in hopes of avoiding the late-season high water levels that have dogged us in recent years. Experience 1800s navigation technology from the inside as we pass through the four Appleton locks.
