The Wilderness Paddlers Gathering began in March 1993 during a blizzard of historic proportions.  2016 marks our 24th Wilderness Paddlers’ Gathering. We continue to enjoy gathering with friends and family to share stories, pictures, videos, skills and food with those who love traveling in the woods and on water.    

We hope you can join us this year for our Gathering. Bring your favorite items to display, from the North or wherever you find wilderness: maps, photo albums, slides, videos, tools, crafts, books, etc.

For more information or to share your ideas, email us here.
