Bogue Chitto River in Mississippi

A self-supported trip created by guest-paddler

Trip Overview

Started out by putting in at the Bogue Chitto water park off of hwy 98 near McComb. We paddled down about 25 miles stopping a couple times along the way for quick breaks on sandbars.

We set up camp around 6pm on a sandbar south of hwy 38. After an awesome night of rain and thunder storms we got back on the river around 9am.

We paddled 35 miles the second day down to the takeout at Choctaw Rd bridge with only a few showers on the way.

The trip turned out really good. Slept like a baby with the storms at night and the showers during the paddle the second day kept it interesting.


Slept in tents on a sandbar. Try to stay away houses and sandbars with tire tracks. Most of the land along the river is private. Some land owners could care less, others are waiting to run people off. Also camp as high as possible and keep an eye on the river gauges. It can come up really fast.


Few dollars per boat at launch.
