Camping and Paddling at Little Talbot Island State Park
Let's camp and explore this fabulous state park and surrounding area. The paddles will be modestly challenging, not really for beginners. 8-12 miles per day, rivers, creeks, open water. I will attempt to paddle with the tidal currents. You must reserve your own campsite. As of August 2, there were plenty of sites available. This park is out-of-the-way, quiet and not heavily used however it is a little noisy because of a nearby highway. The park has bathrooms, hot showers, water, and electricity. The fishing is really good. I will arrive Friday evening, the first paddle is saturday 10am to Naussau Sound and back, 6 miles each way. This is the most challenging paddle with tricky tidal currents however we can turn back at any point if time gets away. Sunday we will paddle to the Fort George River and the Kingsley Plantation National Monument. Monday a trip to Hugenot Point, Tuesday a trip to the beach or hiking, Christmas dinner with turkey and cranberry sauce (turkey cooked in the crockpot). Wednesday we will repeat whichever paddle we liked best, wrap up and go home on Thursday. Sunset is 530 all week. Full moon rises Sunday 646 pm, we will have beautiful moonlight all week and will likely take a moonlight paddle or two in the course of the week. BRING ALL YOUR OWN GEAR AND FOOD. I will arrange group dinners as the date gets closer. As with all of our paddles, we are not guides and we are not instructors. We are a group of kayaking enthusiasts out for a good time. We help each other, learn from each other, and enjoy the privilege of being . By participating in any of our paddles you assume all risks and responsibilities for your personal health and safety and for your equipment. It is important for everyone that each participant be prepared for the trip. Please use your discretion and best judgment when joining a trip. Be sure you are up to the paddle -- physically, mentally and that your equipment is appropriate for the intended trip. Know and respect your limits. Be safe and you will certainly enjoy another fantastic paddle.
