Summer Splash Challenge Runs July 15 to 30

Kayak on Deer Creek Resevoir

It’s a new twist on a Stark Parks classic event.  From July 15 to 30, 2021 we invite you to explore one of Stark Parks’ beautiful lakes by kayak and enter for a chance to win an inflatable kayak kit.

To participate in the Summer Splash Challenge, stop in to the Sippo Lake Park or Walborn Reservoir marinas during regular open hours, pay your entry fee,* and receive a one hour single kayak rental, a dry bag, pen, and “passport.”  Participants must be age 16 and up.  Other family members should meet the age, adult to child ratio, and weight guidelines for marina boat rentals.

How it works?

Paddle the perimeter of the lake to find Summer Splash signs and fill in the code words on your passport. Paddle fast! You have one hour to collect your clues and return your passport to the marina staff to be entered into the grand prize drawing.

Prize Drawing

During the first week of August, one winner will be chosen randomly from the completed entries at each lake.  The two winners will receive a kayak kit including an inflatable kayak, a pump, paddle, and carrying case.  Supplies of bags, pens and passports are limited!  Limit one entry per person and must be 16 year or older to enter.

* Entry Fee: $15.00 in-county

**Rentals depend on kayak availability (First come, first served), and must be used upon paying entry fee.  Using your own kayak is permitted.
