More French Broad River Campsites are underway

August 28, 2012

The French Broad River Paddle Trail is growing with support from key volunteers, such as Curt Crowhurst of CNC Senior Services, Steve Patch from UNCA, and Justyn Thompson of Southern Raft Supply, who teamed up with a group from NC Outward Bound School to assist in the construction of one of RiverLink’s no-reservation, free campsites.  The morning of August 13th they met the NC Outward Bound group and paddled in to the campsite.  The group helped build a trail around the campsite, clear for access stairs and prepare the site for future tent pads and site work.  The day was a great success and made preparations for future construction on the site.   RiverLink will be hosting another campsite construction dayon Saturday September 8th from 9 am to 12 pm;  email to volunteer.  They will be installing the tent pads and river access.
