Incorporated in 1985, the Hackensack River Canoe & Kayak Club encourages canoeing and kayaking with a positive social experience while fostering a spirit of respect and conservation toward our rivers and lakes.

Most of our trips take place in NJ, southern NY, western CT and eastern PA. Although longer trips take place farther afield.

fats2 transparentFounded by a handful of paddlers to promote the conservation of the Hackensack River and Meadowlands through paddling, membership has grown to over 200 and activities stretch across several states.

Annual dues are $15 for individuals and $25 for families. Membership is open to all. Although the club does not have boats for rent, those without boats may be able to make use of a livery service for some trips.

Meetings are held at the Paramus, NJ Central Unitarian Church the first Tuesday of most months at 7 PM. All are welcome. Stop in to check us out!
