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.
