Ohoopee River

Ohoopee River Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A large sandbar near the put-in attracts local sunbathers, anglers, and swimmers—and litterbugs. Pass under the Highway 152 bridge and begin to enjoy that burgundy water flowing over a white sand bottom. The Ohoopee falls into character with many twists and turns, bordered by cypress trees and averaging just 30 to 40 feet wide in most spots. Moss-draped water oaks overhang the river. Bright green willows and river birches rise from the water’s edge, while sweet gums and pines occupy the high places.

Despite exhibiting its Coastal Plain river characteristics—white sandbars, reddish waters, and cypress trees—the river is also quite rocky. The first riffles you pass will actually have some rock, and more rock is scattered along the river bottom. Look for darker squares rising from the sandy river floor, and tap them with your paddle— they are stone."
