  • Get Driving Directions
A small (and easily missed!) park with enough parking for about a half dozen cars. A grassy area with a couple of picnic tables leads to a small gravel put in; it's a very short and easy carry from your car. Shad Bay is very nice to paddle with a slow paced loop around Corchoran's Island taking about an hour. As you'd expect, the further south you get down the bay the closer you get to the Atlantic and the rougher the water gets, but overall it's an easy paddle.
