Guided Canoe Trip to the Ox Bow Lakes in Perry County

September 15 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
Perry Lakes Park, State Highway 175
Marion, AL 36756 United States

Ox Bows are old river meanders that have been cut off, leaving a naturally-formed lake. 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. We often find freshwater shrimp and other odd invertebrates, bryozoans, carnivorous aquatic plants, and occasionally, an alligator. This is a well-known Birding location. It is a fascinating and beautiful place.. We will meet at 8:30 am at the Colonnade Shopping…

A moonlit evening on the Cahaba is a delightful, unique, and relaxing way to enjoy a flatwater portion of the Cahaba. We usually hear a variety of wildlife, and often see hundreds of glowworms. These outings begin at dusk at the old Highway 280 bridge. We paddle about two hours in the 280 pool and then return to the same place we put in.

Overnight Guided Canoe Camping Trip to Perry County

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…
