Lake Mackintosh Marina-Paddle Clean-Up

Come join the paddling fun AND keep Lake Mackintosh beautiful!

Come help us keep our lake clean and beautiful! Burlington Recreation & Parks along with Burlington’s Storm Water Division and Piedmont Triad Regional Council are hosting a paddle clean-up of the upper end of Mackintosh Lake. Clean-up volunteers who bring their own canoe or kayak will be able to launch for free and those volunteers needing a boat can borrow one from the marina at no charge. Registration is required. All volunteers will be provided trash bags and gloves. Come prepared to be on the water for 2 hours with water, sunscreen, and water appropriate footwear. All participants must wear a properly fitted PDF while on the water.

Questions, call (336) 222-5135 or email


***The day of clean-up, please check-in with staff in the parking area immediately behind the marina office (to the right when you first enter the park). Every one needs to stop to sign-waivers, get supplies and instructions before launching boats!
