Southeast Canoe Trip

I have a spare week in July and I would like to take a 3 or 4 day canoe trip. I live in North Alabama and I would prefer something within 200-250 miles of here. Any ideas or good suggestions for creeks/rivers to paddle and camp?



Elk River

The Elk has controlled releases from the bottom of a dam so the water is always there and it will be nice and cool in the July heat. Don’t know about camping on it, but maybe someone else will.

Of course the Tennessee and Coosa are both fairly close too and have long sections you could try.

How much distance are you thinking of covering?

Are you wanting flat water? Class I?


Sipsey trip?
How did your Sipsey trip go last weekend?
