Here’s one of the least known landings on the Withlacoochee River: Futchs Ferry Landing.
It’s in Berrien County, Georgia, southwest of Ray City, on Futchs Ferry Road, which becomes Old Coffee Road on the Cook County side of the river.. It’s downstream from Youngs Mill Creek Landing (2.37 miles) and upstream from Hagan Bridge Landing (10.58 miles), on the Withlacoochee and Little River Water Trail (WLRWT).

That first step, sharp right off the graveled area, is a bit rough.
Do not go through the gate: that’s posted private property.

The rest of the entrance road on the road right of way under the power line is not too bad.

There’s this one big pothole. With free mattress.
