Outdoor Association

This will be a 5-hour float trip on the Tallapoosa River near Tallapoosa, GA. This portion of the river has a slight current with several shoals but no major rapids. We will be utilizing the services of Lazy River Rentals for this trip.

Lazy River Rentals offers rental boats and a shuttle service at the following rates: $25.00 for single person kayaks, $45.00 for double person kayaks, and $10.00 to shuttle private boats. They will put us in at the Broad Street Bridge in Tallapoosa and we will float to their takeout located at 131 Doe Valley Road south of US Hwy 78 near the AL/GA state line.

The shuttle for this trip leaves the outfitter at 9:00 am (cst) / 10:00 am (est). Participants are encouraged to pack a lunch with something to drink, wear clothing/footwear suitable for water activities, and to use sunscreen. The meeting time and location for this trip will be 8:00 am (cst) from the Publix parking lot located across from the Oxford Exchange adjacent to Exit 188 on I-20 and US Hwy 78. Those wishing to meet directly at the outfitter should arrive there no later than 8:45 am (cst) / 9:45 am (est).

Participants should contact Keith Hudson by Monday, June 20 to register for this trip. When registering, indicate if you will need to rent a boat or will just need a shuttle for your personal boat.
