lower forge and mulica wilderness sites are the hike/boat in only sites. many companies do shuttling if you want to paddle thru. map of sies.
loved the Mullica!|

Did the Mullica trip last year in Spring (water was moving pretty fast) and about 4 years ago also same time of the year. Usually Easter vacation from school. We did spot 2 cars and camped out the first time 1 night and last year camped out 2 nights. I'm guessing it's about a 8-10 mile paddle with the campsites around the 6 mile mark. Someone here might know the exact mileage. Beautiful large pine trees around the area. We also pulled the boats over and hiked around an area to see if we could paddle the Batso but we didn't try it. I really liked it and would go again many times. Check it out. I think you also need to buy a inexpensive permit to camp out.

Belhaven Paddlesports no longer does rentals or shuttles and they were the ONLY livery that would do the Mullica or Batso rivers.

Philly from '65 to '70, north Philly was definitely primitive, and parts of west Philly were too.
