DESCRIPTION: “Alapaha River camping at its finest. Catch huge catfish, gar, mudfish, and all the pan you fish you can think of, just steps away from your camp. Beautiful area to camp just 20 mins away from shopping and exploring the heart of South Georgia. You can fish for huge catfish, all night long, with the river just steps away. There are also two ponds you may fish in as well if the river current gets on your nerves. You can set up anywhere you like, near the river or away from it on the open lot by the tree line, lots of areas to choose from. You can drop a small boat or kayak in right from the bank of the river. This area of Georgia used to be the bottom of the ocean so there is lots of sand so even if it rains the ground do not stay wet for long. There is a lot of history in this area with agriculture and railways. Lots of people like to drive just a few minutes away to Fitzgerald and see the original brick streets and railway. Historic downtown Tifton is the closest town and has everything you need or want in a friendly southern town. Wild Adventures theme park is only about an hour away if a rollercoaster is on your mind. Do come to me for anything you may need or questions you have. Do fish in the ponds if you like. Do check the info mailbox by the camp area for contact info.””, “”Do not feed alligators that sometimes visit the area. Do not leave trash.”

HISTORIC FACTS: First constituted in 1825, “”The church and cemetery were on a trail used by the Creek Indians traveling between the Chattahoochee River and the Okefenokee Swamp. During the Indian Wars, 1836-1838, the church building was partially burned. The fire-damaged timbers were used in the reconstruction [in 1854], and since that time Union Church has also been known as Burnt Church.”” The building was then restored in April, 1998.

HISTORIC FACTS: “”The earliest settlers marveled at the vast wetland and its swamps of ancient cypress trees. They also recognized the potential of the water as a source of power. Joshua Lee (1782-1855) settled on higher ground overlooking the wetland and in ca. 1830 built a low-level dam across a drainage stream. Water backed up behind the dam and what is now Banks Lake was formed. Lee used the water that poured from his dam as a power source for a grist mill. The water-driven wheel was first used for grinding grain but over time was also adapted to power both a sawmill and a cotton gin.”” https://www.exploresouthernhistory.com/bankslake.html

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

DESCRIPTION: The last stop on the Alapaha River Water Trail is on the Suwannee River: Gibson Park Ramp, in a county park of Hamilton County, Florida. Much of the year those last 17.95 river miles are dry down from Jennings Bluff Launch. But in the rainy season (winter) sometimes the Alapaha is high and fast and it’s a quick paddle to the Suwannee and a very short upstream to Gibson Park Ramp. The concrete boat ramp is great for a short paddle upstream under the CR 249 bridge to the Alapaha Rise, a spring where Alapaha River water comes back up after eighteen miles underground and three days later.

DESCRIPTION: Dixie Pipeline Company Opelika – Alma (Spur Line), 6.625″” diameter, product type Highly Volatile Liquids (HVL), as in Propane, Butane, Ethane, E/P Mix, HVLs are hydrocarbons that have been pressurized to keep them in a liquid state. If a pipeline is punctured, the HVLs will escape and convert from a liquid to a gas. HVLs are heavier than air; therefore, if they escape from the pipeline, they will likely pool in low-lying areas. HVLs are highly flammable and will burn or explode if exposed to an ignition source. HVLs are dangerous and could be lethal if inhaled by humans or animals. http://www.enterpriseproducts.com/pipeline-safety/pipeline-viewer

MILE: 172.52

ADDRESS: East of Co Rd 59, Rebecca, GA 31783, Ben Hill, Turner Counties.

HISTORIC FACTS: “”The Hawkinsville and Florida Southern Railway (H&FS) was founded in 1896 and by 1901 was operating 43 miles (69 km) of track from Hawkinsville to Worth, Georgia, USA, where it connected with the Georgia Southern and Florida Railroad.[1] It also operated a 15-mile (24 km) line between Davisville and Fitzgerald, Georgia. In 1907, a portion of the H&FS was leased to the Gulf Line Railway However, in 1913, the H&FS took over operations and fully absorbed the Gulf Line resulting in a line from Hawkinsville to Camilla, Georgia. In 1922, the H&FS went bankrupt. The section from Camilla to Ashburn, Georgia, was purchased by the Georgia, Ashburn, Sylvester and Camilla Railway but no buyers could be found for the remainder of the system and it was abandoned by 1923.””

ACCESS: PARKING: Free, PICNIC AREA

WATER BODY: Dead River

ADDRESS: From US 41, turn east onto NW 25 Ln, turn into Jennings Bluff Tract, park at Jennings Bluff Launch, walk to Dead River, follow inland, Hamilton County.

DESCRIPTION: When water levels are low, most of the Alapaha River water rushes into the sinks in the Alapaha River and into the Dead River Sink, leaving the Alapaha River dry downstream from Jennings Bluff, for the seventeen river miles to the Suwannee River. The Dead River Sink is the end of the Dead River, which is a distributary that takes water from the Alapaha River. Water is always going into the Dead River Sink, down into the Floridan Aquifer, or perhaps one of the aquifers above it. The water comes back up about three days later in the Alapaha River Rise, a spring connected to the Suwannee River just upstream from the Alapaha River Confluence.
