Book Online Now

Stand up paddle, kayak, or canoe for a cause!

A fundraiser and paddle-party for all skill levels, this is a family-friendly atmosphere at the lake. Paddle to card stations around the lake, then take your 5-card hand to win prizes back at the beach! There is also an online silent auction, music, rock painting a concert and games all on the beach for all who come event those that choose not to paddle.

Park Entrance Fee:

Entrance into Quail Creek State Park is just $5 with proof of registration. Many thanks to our park manager, Jon Allred, for his support.

Is it a race?

Kind of; get to the stations first and get your pick of cards!

How will I know where the stations are?

Each station will have a buoy floating nearby. A map will be provided for you to identify your best route (up to you to plot your course), and a "dealer" will be present to help you get your cards.

How can I get extra cards?

There is one bonus card station that will be listed on the map and easy to identify.

All proceeds benefit a local family battling cancer. This year's recipient is Robert "Bob" Johnson of Hurricane, Utah.

    Event Sponsorship Program – Dig Paddlesports

    ALL TICKET ORDERS ARE FINAL AND NON-REFUNDABLE. Proceeds from the fundraiser directly benefit the Johnson Family.



    If an event cannot begin because of weather conditions, Dig Paddlesports will hold the performance and/or event start for up to 30 minutes. At that time conditions will be evaluated and a decision will be made whether the event can continue or not. Weather conditions often improve, therefore events are not canceled in advance. Some events may continue in the rain.

    If an event is canceled due to inclement weather, purchaser may;

    • Receive the value of their tickets on an exchange card which works like a gift card and is valid for rental or events in the next 12 months.
    • Exchange their tickets directly toward another event
    • Reschedule for the same event if it has been postponed to a future date.
    • Fundraiser event revenues still go to the stated beneficiary organization.

    DIG PADDLESPORTS retains the right to change these policies at any time for any reason.
