Leaf River - Kayak Trip / Canoe Trip

Report Type: Day Trip Report
Trip Dates: June 23, 2012
Nearest City: Ellisville, MS
Difficulty: Easy
Submitted by: AllenR


Put in at a public ramp on Hwy 588, floated 7 miles to a public ramp on Hwy 590. This stretch of river is very nice, I recommend it.

The gauge for Leaf River at Hattiesburg, MS was at 1.53'. The water level was good for our trip but we all agreed if it had been any lower it would have been too much work. We scrapped the bottom of the canoes a couple of times but was a great trip.


Concrete ramps at both sites (public)




Highway 588 and Highway 590 both have exits on Interstate 59.
