Satilla River Paddle - a Coastal Blackwater Adventure

Join the Georgia Conservancy, Satilla Riverkeeper, Georgia Canoeing Association and SouthEast Adventures for a paddle on one of the most beautiful backwater rivers in Georgia - the majestic Satilla. We will be paddling a beautiful 10-mile section of river between Burnt Fort ramp and the take out near the Satilla Lodge.

UPDATE: Paddlers can camp out at the Satilla Lodge on the banks of the river for $20 per person per night. Campers will have access to the amenities at the Satilla River Lodge (sorry, no RV hookups, but we will have power). Pay with cash or check at the event.

The rally-up for the paddle will start at noon, however, paddlers will have access to the property starting at 11:00 a.m. Folks who would like to come early and enjoy a sack lunch on the banks of the river are welcome.

Along the 10 miles of river that we will paddle, there are a couple of beautiful narrow side creeks that we can potentially explore. There is at least one piece of high ground that we can get out and stretch our legs along the way.

The Satilla River Paddle is one of our twelve Heartland Rivers of Georgia trips featuring camping, paddling and stewardship in south and central Georgia. The series brings to light conservation efforts, economic development and recreational opportunities on the Flint, Ocmulgee, Ogeechee, Chattahoochee, Altamaha, Satilla and Savannah rivers.

Largely unknown to the Georgia outdoor enthusiast, Georgia’s heartland rivers are a treasure trove of unparalleled natural beauty and recreation opportunity just a short drive from home.
