Report: My first trip to Cane Creek was in June 2004. Very much enjoyed thaat month's offered "Moonlight Kayak Ride" led by one of the park's staff. He was very informative, the atmosphere of our group was relaxed and light-hearted. The lake atmosphere had a dream-quality: a splash of a beaver, croaking of frogs, and moonlight on large lilly pads as we gently oared through the water. I definitely plan to return!
