Garrison Lake is an interesting paddle in either the daytime or under the full moon.

Put-in and take-out are in the same spot.  This lake is freshwater on top...salt water a yard or two beneath the surface.  When the lake breaches into the ocean the fresh water flows off the top leaving the lake with a much higher salt content...which affects the fresh water dependent fish, animals, and birds.

Paddle serenely through calm water...look at birds and mammals and enjoy the humans that live in homes adjacent to this lake.

Drive west on 18th Street.  You'll see the launch ramp.
