On Saturday, June 25,
A small group of us are getting together for a paddle/camp overnighter and thought it would be fun to invite other hangers!
We went last year and here are the pics of last years trip.
We're meeting about 11:30am at Kings Creek access allow us time to set up the shuttle and still get to camp fairly early. The campsite can fill up on weekends, so its good to arrive early. This will leave some time for exploring the trails in the area or other activities as we wish.
After putting in at King’s Creek road access we will paddle to the Allegheny Access campsite about 5 river miles or 2.5 hrs of paddling. This primitive campsite has no road access and is only accessible by water. There are several trails in the area so we can do some hiking either on Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning. On Sunday we will continue down the river about 4 miles or two hrs of paddling to the takeout at the NC Rt. 93 Bridge.
Paddlers should be self contained which means you must be able to carry all your camping gear in your kayak or canoe. Dry Bags are recommended.
You will need food for dinner on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday. I would also suggest bringing two lunches, one for Saturday and one for Sunday. We may take out in time for lunch Sunday, but we will be out in the boonies and there is not much purchasing options.
There is potable water at the campsite so there is no need to carry or treat water for camp.
There is a small fee to camp, its on the honor system (Its less than $5 as I recall).
Here is a link to a map of the river
