Guided Canoe Trip to the Ox Bow Lakes in Perry County

September 15, 2018 @ 2:30 am - 11:00 am UTC-6

The Perry County Lakes are Cahaba River meanders that have grown up into Cypress and Tupelo swamps with lots of Spanish moss and unusual wildlife.

Perry Lakes Park, State Highway 175
Marion, AL 36756 United States
+ Google Map

One of the very best ways to get a feel for the nature of the Cahaba River is to spend a couple of days and a night camping on the river. The first day is much like the Day Trips described above. But instead of crawling out of the river at the end of the day, we find a sand bar, pitch tents, cook a meal, and spend the night by a campfire. Soaking up an entirely different kind of…
