Standup Paddling on Lake Erie in Lorain Ohio






Standup Paddling on Lorain’s waterways evokes postcard imagery.  Our inaugural promotional flyer pays homage to the vintage postcard designs that reflect Lorain’s picturesque Lakefront.

Lorain is a Gateway to Lake Erie because of its unique location on Ohio’s North Shore and accessible waterfront. Lake Erie Paddler was involved in a hotbed of activity this weekend featuring multiple events that revolved around Lorain’s waterways.

On Saturday, Lake Erie Paddler was a sponsor and participant in the 2nd Annual Black River Kayak-A-Thon.  The event was a collaboration organized and presented by the City of Lorain, The Lorain Port Authority, and the Lorain County Metroparks.

Canoers, Kayakers, and Standup Paddlers departed from the Lorain County Metroparks French Creek launch pad and paddled four (4) miles down the Black River highlighting the restoration efforts, culminating at the Lorain International Festival Site.

We are committed to serving the community by sharing the joys and benefits of standup paddling and encouraging recreation on Lorain’s lakefront waterways.
