    course, there are campgrounds nearby. Getting your paddling muscles activated and a chance to spend some time outdoors have people coming from far and near. The wonderful Monroe County scenery and the playfulness of the
water will make you feel great. The put-in location is a reasonable drive from Rochester, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you wonít get lost.
