Kayak drop in

Looking to kayak the fish kill creek. Camping at sylvan lake campground in Hopewell junction. Any Recommendations as to where we can put our kayaks in? And a good pull out area?

Is there something in particular that makes you want to paddle Fishkill Creek? It's certainly possible in places, but until you get well downstream it's probably not very practical. In theory you can probably put in legally from any road crossing, but parking will often be an issue. You also don't want to blunder into something like this: https://goo.gl/maps/qoRTH4QgRqJ2 It's probably legally navigable in that area, but it's a safe bet that the people who live there don't know that.

Once you get down near Wappinger Falls it gets bigger and there are a few parks where you could get on the river fairly easily. You shouldn't venture downstream of the park on Washington St in Beacon.

You might want to Google the Great swamp in Patterson for other options.
