Lately I’ve seen a lot of posts such as “how many miles from Knights Ferry Boat Ramp to Nankin?”
That’s 6.65 river miles, or about 3.3 paddle hours, and here’s how you can find out,
for the Little and Withlacoochee Rivers, for the Alapaha River, and for the Suwannee, Ichetucknee, and Santa Fe Rivers, plus interactive maps.
The Access Points web page for the
Withlacoochee and Little River Water Trail (WLRWT)
lists all the public boat ramps and landings on the Little and Withlacoochee Rivers,
with river miles downstream to the next one.
Also an estimate of paddling hours, GPS coordinates, icons for amenities,
and a link to the most relevant river gauge.
Please accept this letter as an endorsement of the WWALS Watershed
Coalition’s pre-application for grant assistance regarding the
Troupville River Camp project.
The VLCCCTA believes that improvements in the destination’s
tourism-related offerings will build the travel and tourism
industry’s economic impact. The Troupville River Camp would not only
enhance the destination’s appeal to the outdoors market but it would
also garner more attention for Valdosta, Lowndes County and South
Georgia that could lead to even greater development in the future.
The increase in travel and tourism business would have a positive
impact on the economy here and, likewise, the quality of life.
A collection of such letters thus far and the rest of the WWALS grant pre-application to the Georgia Outdoor Stewardship Program (GOSP) is here: Continue reading →
