In Feb or March 2011 I am looking to plan a trip for my kayak group (all experienced long-distance paddlers/campers) down the St Mary’s river in Florida starting at Hwy 121 just north of Macclenny, FL and travel to the coast - Atlantic Ocean. We will paddle leisurely 20-mile days but could add mileage if needed to make it to a campsite.
Need help with logisitcs:
- We’d like to leave our vehicles near the coast so when we finish our trip our vehicles will be within walking distance. Suggestions for accessible and safe places to leave vehicles needed.
- Above will require a shuttle from near the Atlantic to put in at Hwy 121 - any suggestions for outfitters?
- 1st half of trip we probably won’t have trouble finding campsites. 2nd half as we near coast need suggestions for campsites and/or hotels/cabins/B&B near/on the river.
- Is Ft Clinch a good place to make campsite reservations?
If anyone has done the whole river or parts, we’d appreciate feedback and advice.
