April 19 Friday: 8:30 AM Meet at I-10 Exit 283 Live Oak/Jasper
Convoy to Canoe Outpost located within the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park. We'll leave our cars there and be shuttled by the Canoe Outpost to Hwy 41 bridge Suwannee River Wayside Park Ramp .
Paddle 13.7 miles to Woods Ferry River Camp. We have 2 screened cabins reserved. Each cabin sleeps 6. You're welcome to bring a tent if you prefer. The screened cabins have electricity and ceiling fans. Cabin sites have picnic tables and fire rings. The restrooms have hot showers.
April 20 Saturday: 9:30 AM break camp and launch.
Paddle 9.5 Miles to Spirit of Suwannee Music Park. The park is having their annual Wanee Musicfest with multiple bands and stages. Tower of Power plays from 5:15 - 6:30 on the small stage. Widespread Panic will play the main stage from 6:30 - 8:30 and The Allman Brothers Band will play the main stage from 9:30 - 12:00 PM. Paddlers can leave any time but I would suggest pitching a tent and spending the evening in the park. We can bring food leave it in the car Friday, and we can share a meal together Saturday. While 4-day Waneefest weekend passes run $150 and up, we are able to"kayak in" and visit, but we just won't be able to get REALLY close to the stages.
$15 per person shuttle fee to be paid in advance. Refunds will be made only if the trip is cancelled.
