Kayaking Inspired Gifts - Sales Help Support This Site




Three miles south of the Stemmers Run boat ramp is a beautiful shallow creek full of heron, bald eagles, ducks, red wing blackbirds, tuckahoe, pickerel and American lotus.




Stemmers Run launch ramp is a large federally funded state ramp on the eastern shore of the Elk river just below the end of Elk Neck. It is a great place to launch for exploring the shallow creek 2 miles to the south. Due to the large farms, Wildlife Management Area and minimal development on the banks of the creek, this creek is in very good shape with healthy complement of underwater grasses, well filtered water, lush cattail and tuckahoe along the bank nd a big area of American lotus. There are several areas of brown sandy beaches at the mouth. Altogether it i a most pleasant place to paddle.
