Guided Canoe Tour: Oxbow Trip to Perry County

Perry Lakes Park State Highway 175, Marion, AL

Day trips are all-day adventures to a seldom seen stretch of the Cahaba River. This trip to Perry Lakes Park in south Alabama takes us to a beautiful ox bow lake and Cyprus swamp formed by a meander in the Cahaba River. There will be ample opportunities to stop, explore, and see the sights. Staff will point out wildlife, seine for fish, and discuss the natural history of wildlife and southern rivers when the critters present themselves. It is not unusual for us to spot resident Bald eagles on these trips. For those who wish to caravan to Perry CountyContinue Reading ...

Guided Canoe Tour: Overnight Trip in Perry County

Perry Lakes Park State Highway 175, Marion, AL

One of the very best ways to get a feel for the nature of the Cahaba River is to spend a couple of days and a night camping on the river.
The first day is much like the Day Trips described above. But instead of crawling out of the river at the end of the day, we find a sand bar, pitch tents, cook a meal, and spend the night by a campfire. Soaking up an entirely different kind of experience on the river is great fun. You must provide your own camping gear and food.

$20 – $40
