Magees Creek - Kayak Trip / Canoe Trip

Report Type: Day Trip Report
Trip Dates: August 12, 2006
Nearest City: Tylertown, MS
Difficulty: Easy
Submitted by: Dillon

Description:

Well there are two places you can canoe or kayak . One is Magees Creek or Bogue Chitto River. The river is real easy, the creek is a little more for the experienced paddler. It's still not difficult, just many obstructions which to me is what makes it a great place to canoe.

The water is clear and flows but pretty calm, no whitewater. There are a couple places where the flow is a little faster which makes me wish the entire trip was like that. Not too many sandy beaches; mostly rocky and hard clay.

The creek is mostly quiet with some other paddlers present at times, however on my recent trip I went 6 miles and saw not one other person. That suited me just fine. There is lots of wildlife to see ... snakes, birds sometimes deer ... NO GATORS!

It really is a nice place to paddle, and the folks that run the local outfitter (Canoe and Trail Outpost) are super friendly. They offer shuttle service if you have your own boat; $15 for rental, 25 dollars for a short trip (about 6 miles), or 35 dollars for a long trip about 13 miles (that's on the creek). I never do the river trip... way too easy for me.

It's a nice place, close to New Orleans. A little more challenging than Wolf River or Black Creek, but not difficult.

Accommodations:

There are RV hook ups available (I do not know the cost), and there are primitive camp sites; hot showers are avaiable; ice too. They do have some nice cabins for rent but reservations are a must long in advance of your trip.
