The Escatawpa is a swift-moving blackwater river with plenty of deep pools to swim in and beautiful white sandbars. The sandbars allow for overnight camping anywhere along the entire route. The river can be paddled or can be floated with an inner tube. Generically they’re known as blackwater rivers. These are rivers that flow fairly deep and have a dark red or black tint to them, which comes from tannic acid from the oak trees that line the riverbanks. The dark colors are accentuated by beautiful fine-grain white-sand beaches, which can be found around almost every bend. These rivers are mostly found in the lower third of the state, primarily in the Gulf Coast and southeast regions. The Escatawpa is one such blackwater river, but what makes the river special is its location and remoteness. Other rivers of this type—such as the Styx and Perdido—pack the people in during the summer mainly because of their easy access from Escambia County, Florida, and Baldwin County, Alabama. The Escatawpa is located in a very remote section of western Mobile County. As a matter of fact, you will pass only two houses on this trip, and they are at the very beginning.
