Mullica River Canoe Camping, Kayak Sign Up Page

  • May 31, 2014 · 8:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Once again, it's time for our annual Mullica River Canoe Camping trip. Please read this entire trip description before registering.

NOTE: This Meetup page is for registering kayaks only! Please go to the main sign up page to register with a canoe.

There are no rental kayaks permitted on this trip. The rental kayaks are not suitable for an overnight trip. There is no space for your gear and it would be extremely difficult to keep what you could carry dry. If you want to use your own kayak, you must be able to carry ALL your own gear. Touring kayaks with watertight compartments are usually the best for this. I will need to approve the use of your kayak.

There have more changes at the Mullica River Camp this year. We have reserved five campsites that have tent and person limits. I will need to know your tenting plans. So be sure to answer the questions when you RSVP.

Between Atsion and Pleasant Mills, the Mullica River winds its way through the heart of the New Jersey Pine Barrens in Wharton State Forest . Along the way, the river passes through many environments including cedar swamps, savanna marshes, bogs and forest.
On this is a 2 day canoe trip, the river will start out narrow, but will eventually widen out to about two canoe lengths wide. There will be many sharp turns as the river continually twists its way through the forest. We will pass some sandy beaches where we will stop for breaks. On Saturday night we will camp at  the Mullica River Wilderness Campground. At the campground there are pit toilets and there is water available. The campground is not accessible by motor vehicles.

MEALS:

This trip includes dinner and breakfast at the campsite. This makes the trip easier for everybody and you don't need to be concerned about a stove and food. Here is the menu as I see it. Participants are requested to send suggestions.

DINNER: Charcoal cooked hamburgers, hot dogs and veggie burgers.
Spaghetti and tomato sauce. Salad. Coffee and Tea (ketchup, mustard, salad dressings grated cheese,  etc.)
EVENING: Snacks and marshmallows.
BREAKFAST: French toast, Bagels, Bacon, Fresh Brewed Coffee, Tea and OJ. (Butter, cream cheese, maple syrup, etc.)

You need to provide your own lunch for Saturday and Sunday along with any other beverages. (IE: soda and juice)

NOTE: Alcoholic beverages are prohibited in NJ state parks and forest!

COST:

The cost for this trip with your own kayak is $25 per person.

All participants will need to sign a liability release form for the DVAMC. Money will be collected the morning of the trip. Please bring cash. Deposits are not required or accepted.

The trip cost includes dinner, breakfast and camping.

DEER TICKS:

Yes, there are deer ticks in the Pine Barrens. Please take all recommended precautions and check yourself and others at the end of the day.

    Hey, was converging the two Meetup pages for the Mullica trip. I moved the photos to the main Meetup page and I was going to delete this duplicate kayak signup Meetup. But I couldn't move all those nice comments. So it will have to remain.

    Rich - Thank you for organizing a wonderful weekend on the Mullica. I really liked that the water was higher so we never got 'stuck' on logs, etc. Scrunching into the bow to get past some of the low hanging tree trunks was challenging and memorable. The weather was ideal and the group was a lot of fun. Thanks to Greg for being such a great canoe partner. Looking forward to future adventures.
