NBP Rec Days!

A great, FUN way to experience NBP, family-style

rec day kayaker


It's a great way to experience NBP, family-style! Participants will have the opportunity to try stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, canoes, fishing and rides in a 15-foot sailboat with captain! (Wednesday NBP Rec Days! are ideal for homeschool students!) 

NBP Rec Days! are held at the base of the finish tower on Regatta Island. Depending on events, however, they may move to the west shore, near the playground. (We'll let you know with a post in the Facebook event discussion if that change is made.) Signs will be in place to direct you, either way.


Unable to register ahead of time? Come on out — you can register on-site! 

Adult: $10
Child: $5
Family: $40 (for families with two adults and three or more children)

All must complete the waiver forms — link is below, but can also be filled out on-site.
Fishing licenses are required for all participants 14 and older who choose to fish.
