Make your camp site reservation through
Outing leader Shirley Kokidko has
site #56. Let’s try to stay close together so we can share
a camp fire and group meal Saturday evening. If you want to share a
site and split the cost, post it in the comments (meetup, facebook, or blog)
so others will see it.
If you don’t want to camp, we want you to come out and join us for this paddle.
Saturday morning we will meet at the marina at 9 a.m. to shuttle vehicles
to the take out at the Sill. We will paddle from Billy’s Lake through
the Narrows to the Sill. The current can be swift so you must be able to
maneuver you boat around trees in a swift narrow stream. You must wear a
PFD and have a tow rope. The park rents canoes, kayaks and bicycles. There
will be an optional paddle Sunday morning.
You must wear a PFD and have a tow rope.
Also boat, paddles, food, drinking water, warm clothes, and first aid kit.
And trash pickers and trash bags: every WWALS outing is also a cleanup.
The park will have a telescope for star gazing Friday night, this is one of the darkest places in the Southeast due to a lack of light pollution in the Okefenokee Swamp. The park also offers a boat tour after dark on Saturday.
Telephone reception is mostly non-existent in this remote location so be prepared to put the electronics away and plug into nature.
Free: This outing is free to WWALS members, and $10 (ten dollars) for non-members.
