Paddle Big Jim Pond and BBQ at Bickfords

Saturday, July 13
Join us for a fun and leisurely paddle on remote and beautiful Big Jim Pond, followed by a cookout up on scenic Eustis Ridge, at the Bickford’s, on Woodcock Lane.

The plan is to meet at Natanis parking lot (on left, just past Pines Market on Rt. 27 In Eustis) at 10:00 AM. We will caravan to The King & Bartlett Road and the put in at Jim Pond, about a five mile drive.

We will spend a couple hours exploring the pond by kayaks and/or canoes. There are also beaching and swimming opportunities if you wish. Then, we will pack up and trek back to Eustis, and up the Eustis Ridge road to the Bickford’s at 12 Woodcock Lane, for a cookout and get together.

RSVP to let us know the head count and grill preferences (burger, veggie burger, hot dogs). Please bring a side to share (appetizer, side, or dessert). BYOB. Let us know what category you plan to bring for a side, so we get a good mix of offerings for the table! Email:

This was a fun event last August, and we hope you will join us for a good time with fellow CVOA members on the water, and hanging out together up on “The Ridge”.

If anyone chooses/needs to rent a kayak from Pines Market, and needs transport to the Pond, let us know.
