Mullica River Paddle, Wharton State Forest. Class 1

The water levels are up! So it's a great time to enjoy one of the most scenic and pleasant rivers in the pine barrens. The Mullica River winds its way past stately cedar stands, savanna marshes, bogs and forest. We will put in at the old campground and explore the lily pad covered Beaver Pond before heading downstream to Pleasant Mills. Large sandy beaches will provide many swimming opportunities. The flat and gentle flowing water through many twisting turns will provide an excellent opportunity for all skill levels to sharpen their paddling techniques.

This trip is being run through an outfitter. The outfitter will provide transportation to the Old Campground put in and from the take out at Plesant Mills. The charge with a rental kayak and transportation is $40.00 including tax. Rental canoes are $60 ($30 each). If you are bringing your own boat, the charge is $25.00 solo or $40 tandem for the transportation. Note that prices are per person. There is no private shuttle option.

    I would definitely want to join this trip if my legs conditions allow. Location, weather, and a nice line-up of the members. I just do not have confidence in getting in and out from the unstable boat from or onto the slippery or muddy surface.
    Have fun everyone!

    July 18, 2014

    • Rich P.

      Hi Midori, If you want to come, I can open up the RSVP's. I had a few drops and we can help you getting in and out of the kayak. Rich

      1 · July 18, 2014

    • Midori

      Thanks Rich. If my condition is better like last Saturday ( note: I did not go on hike), I would go. Hopefully next time.

  • Imma

    sorry I won't be able to make it after all as I need to be back home before 4:30 pm but I'm sure you'll all have fun. Next time

    July 18, 2014

    • Rich P.

      Okay, next time Imma.

    Hi Folks, We are looking at a great day for paddling the Mullica tomorrow! The water level is on the high side such that we will be floating over most obstacles. We will be able to paddle into places the you normally can't go. On the down side, getting under stuff will be more difficult. Low hanging branches are always there. So make sure that you have eye glass straps. Otherwise you risk loosing your glasses. Please change your RSVP if you decide to not come. I hope that most of you will join us at the Pick a Lilly for our post trip gathering. If you have any questions, please ask. Rich

      Chris, The plan is to be off the river by 3 and back to the cars by 4. But no guarantees. So make your plans accordingly. Rich

    Are there online forms needed for registration ?

    July 17, 2014

    • Rich P.

      No online forms. We fill them out in the morning.

      July 18, 2014

  • Imma

    when will be back to the cars?

    July 18, 2014

  • Margie

    I would love to go, but would need a ride from Philadelphia, or anywhere I could get to via SEPTA. Can anyone help? Thanks.

    July 16, 2014

    • Marta

      That's very easy (unless they decide to start a construction around there on Sat, LOL!). I will pick you up at the Cira Center door (the one under the overpass) at 7am, I don't want to call it too close. Will email you my phone # : )

      1 · July 17, 2014

    • Marta

      BTW: Have room for one more and will be passing Cira Center at 7:30 actually

    Hi Rich!
    How long will the whole event take? Trying to coordinate the time for my friend.

    July 17, 2014

  • Dorothy

    I hope to make this one again, had great fun last time. My car is in the shop, they gave me a rental (i.e. no roof rack) so if I don't get my car back in time I might just rent one for the day. The shorter boats seems to work better for this river anyway.
