suwannee river picFor three days we will frolic in the remoteness of the Upper Suwannee River. Beginning at Florida’s northernmost boat launch, we will paddle to White Springs, FL. Overnights will be spent beach camping on the Suwannee. We will travel approximately 34 miles.

Our journey will begin at the Roline Boat Launch in Hamilton County Florida. Day one will be approximately 12 miles. Day two, we paddle to Big Shoals State Park, approximately 16 miles, and Day 3 we paddle 8 miles to Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park.

Eight openings are available for this trip. The cost of the trip is $75.00 per person. This includes a kayak, PFD, paddle, 2 breakfasts, and 2 dinners, and campfire treats. Participants will need to bring their own snacks, lunches, and camping gear, and arrange their own transportation to the Roline Boat Launch. Participants are welcome to bring their own food as well.

The Suwannee River Management District restricts vehicles from overnight parking at Roline. Vehicles may be left at American Canoe Adventures in White Springs, FL for $3 per night, or at Stephen Foster Culture Center State Park for $5 per night. American Canoe Adventures has a shuttle to the Roline Boat Launch. They charge $15 per seat. I have reserved a seat on this shuttle. The Sierra Club has no association with American Canoe Adventures. Use of any third party services is completely at the risk of the user. The Sierra Club assumes no liability for third party services. Participants will need to arrange for their own transportation to the Roline Boat Launch, and overnight accommodation of their vehicles. Anyone who would like to inquire about parking and shuttle services, can contact John Hannum at American Canoe Adventures, 10315 SE 141st Blvd, White Springs, FL 32096, http://www.aca1.com, (386) 397-1309.

For registration and information, please call Dan Clark at 863 812-0573, or email: wawawou@live.com. I will email the itinerary, registration and release of liability forms, and equipment list to all who request.
