  Apalachicola River Trip - need info
  Posted by: dwboca on Aug-25-10 9:12 PM (EST)


It's that time again when we are beginning to plan another winter kayak expedition trip. In 2011 it will be the Apalachicola River and we will start a little north of Florida along the Florida/Alabama line. I think the river is called the Chattahoochee above Lake Seminole.

I am gathering info to plan the logistics but I am having trouble finding a map of the river with boat ramps, potential camp sites, etc. We were spoiled with the great maps that the Suwannee River Management people provided - has boat ramps, river miles as well as river camps.

We will be self-supported and need to know where water re-supply can be found as well as potential camp sites.

If anyone has done the river and/or knows where I can get info, maps, etc. please let me know.

Try the FL Fish & Wildlife consevation comm's
( of recreational services
I got a great, free tyvex map, "Apalachicola River Wildlife & Environmental area Paddling trail system" they publish. It only covers the river's delta but they should also have info/maps on more upstream sections
  Thanks for the tip

I think I've already talked to them and found they don't have a good map that shows miles and/or boat ramps and other info. I am in contact with the Apalachicola Riverkeeper and he and his friends have provide some great info but I can always use more.

Riverkeeper info if anyone is interested they watch over the river for all of us:
PO Box 8, 232B Water Street
Apalachicola FL 32329

Also looking for kayak shuttle service from Apalachicola to our put in at the FL/AL/GA border if anyone can recommend one.

I think this is months after you have posted the original message about paddling the apalachicola. I live in Marianna, and would be glad to do a shuttle from Apalachicola to your put-in if you still need it. A retired teacher who is also an avid paddler and lives in the area.
