Mike, I've never seen canoe lockers before. What are their dimensions? How long, wide and deep a canoe can fit? Do people put a rug or something inside to make the sliding easier?

@Glenn…..the lockers are 18’ deep, approximately 3’tall, and maybe 3.5’ wide…in that picture I previously posted of the lockers, the lockers continue beyond the closed doors at the end of the hall and they have a 4th row of lockers. Most people line their locker with either carpet scraps or cardboard….many of them also have a wood roller at the front of the locker to help slide the boat out. I currently have a bell rockstar and a native watercraft U-12 for the wife to paddle in mine.

I’ve never had a tour. Driven by a few times. My younger days were all about getting away from urbania with my canoe. Now, I might need to see this localish piece of history. How does one get in? Seems like DCC used to send me email.

It's a private club and each member has a key and pass code for 24/7 access. Membership hovers at around 100. Of the 100 members, there are probably 25 or so "active" members. I'll PM you my phone number and you can reach out to me sometime and I'll take you over for a tour. In fact, any members here that find their way to or passing thru the Dayton area, if your interested, contact me and if I am able, I would be happy to give you a tour.

Mike
