This creek flows through the Broad Creek Memorial Scout Reservation, which is owned by the Baltimore Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America. They have dammed it to create a lake about 3/4 mile long. There are camps held there throughout the summer and on various other weekends, and the scouts go swimming and paddling on the lake. Before you paddle this, you might want to call 443-573-2500 to find out whether the Boy Scouts have any objections.

Upper Yough Access Fundraiser a Big Success

Tonight American Whitewater presented the Town of Friendsville, Maryland with a $5000 check towards the extension of the Upper Yough Access Parking Area. This, combined with a $1000 donation from Keelhaulers Canoe Club, made a strong statement of how much paddlers value the river and the town! Under the leadership of Mayor Spencer Schlosnagle and long time paddler and Friendsville resident Jess Whittemore the town raised $7 in additional funding for every dollar paddlers donated - just like they did on the initial construction! This makes these gifts a great value for the whitewater community. A big shout out and thank you to ALL who donated!
