Location Overview

Clam Bayou Nature Park in Gulfport is across the bayou. It has an unimproved launching area. Paddling.com map does not show most of the mangrove islands. Use satellite view. Also access to Skyway/ Bayway channel with National Wildlife Refuge Islands. About 5 mile paddle to the Gulf at Pass a Grille or Blind Pass. Launch area is also a nice park that is a junction for bike and walking paths. Also seems to be a youth hangout.
