Descriptions

Sheboggy Boat Ramp @ US 82 RampParkingHandicapped AccessibleHistoric Attraction

CATEGORIES: Landing

LAYER: Brochure

GPS: 31.386279, -83.191609

OWNERSHIP: Public

ACCESS: Yes, Ramp: Concrete on graveled access road, PARKING: Free, HANDICAPPED ACCESSIBLE

WATER BODY: Alapaha River

Lowest boatable: 215.3

Highest safe: 218.2

GAUGE: Alapaha

MILE: 127.60

ADDRESS: Left bank, 11004 US Highway 82, Alapaha, GA 31622, Berrien County.

DESCRIPTION: One of the longest downstream paddles, but well worth it to see why the Alapaha is rated A+ for scenery: overhanging oaks, pines, cypress, river birch, ogeechee limes, herons, bass, turtles, almost no invasive species, old railbridge pilings, a mystery church, power lines, and many creeks.

HISTORIC FACTS: Sheboggy is the traditional name for this Alapaha River access point, after the nearby Sheboggy Package Store, which is currently in ruins. At the request of WWALS, in March 2018 Berrien County officially renamed it Sheboggy Boat Ramp. https://wwals.net/?p=43927 Berrien County in June 2017 rebuilt Sheboggy Boat Ramp and improved the access road. https://wwals.net/?p=34422

ADDRESS: 1291 Rowetown Church Road, Alapaha, GA 31622, Berrien County.

DESCRIPTION: Call 229-686-4512 for permission before using.
