Wind at your Back Lazy River
Take the exit off the TCH into the town of Whitbourne. You will be following Route 81 all the way to the Hodge River. When you’re going into Whitbourne you will pass Franks Grocery store (big red building) on the left. Take the next right turn on to Route 81 towards Markland. Follow this till you come to the bridge where you will see a gold van with the company logo on it and a white cargo trailer behind it. There is a small sign on the post there that says Lazy River with the company Logo on it.
PLEASE DO NOT LITTER ALONG THE ROADWAYS OR IN THE WATERS! RESPECT THE ENVIRONMENT!
Please Carpool as much as possible as parking is limited.
Parking in the small lot by the river is limited. Please don’t crowd this lot to block use of it for others.
Before you get to the bridge for the Hodge River there are wide spaces on the sides of Route 81 that you can safely park and walk to the river.
Please make sure your vehicle is off the pavement, don’t block road ways or private driveways.
There is to be NO PARKING in the community cemetery parking lot under any circumstances.
