One of the most special paddles and camping trips I’ve enjoyed was last year’s trip to Hawkinsville, Ga and the paddle down the Ocmulgee River. I was so surprised by the amazing beauty of this river in this area. The folks in Hawkinsville are wonderful and the river is a big, slow moving joy to paddle! This is the “one” trip you will want to attend.. come enjoy the friendly folks in Hawkinsville as well as the natural beauty of their river!
Saturday night, we will enjoy presentations from key players in the Ocmulgee “Blueway Project” and information on how we can help! Get ready to get informed!
