Presque Isle Poker Paddle

Local News

The Presque Isle Poker Paddle will start at the Lagoons Boat Launch/ Graveyard Pond on Saturday June 4 at 10 a.m. After launching, paddlers will follow a 4.45 mile circuit through the lagoons, Marina Lake, East/ West Pier, Presque Isle Bay, Misery Bay and Graveyard Pond to finish where they started. 

Through the paddle participants will draw a card at each of the five separate check points. The objective is to have the best or worst poker hand at the end of the paddle. Participants may earn a maximum of two extra cards by picking up trash along the way and making a donation to the Presque Isle Partnership. Prize for the best hand is $300 and the worst hand is $150.

The cost per paddler is $50. That includes a whistle, door prizes, 20-liter dry bag and an after party at the Millcreek Brewing company on West Lake Road where paddlers will enjoy a free meal and craft brew.  The first 100 registrants will receive a swag bag form Field & Stream. 

The event is limited to 150 paddlers and pre-registration is required. Participants must be 18 or older. Visit to register.
