Crow Creek WMA in Alabama

Trip Overview

Crow creek WMA is where Crow creeks flows into Lake Guntersville on the Tennessee river. There is a large shallow embayment north of highway 72 with several low islands. We put in at the Stevenson city park which has a boat ramp. The bay is full of water weeds and lilly pads.

We paddled around the bay and saw a deer on one of the islands. There were several Osprey flying overhead a couple with fish. Paddling North towards the hills we got into Crow Creek which meanders around with several oxbows. We paddled up past the railroad bridge to a metal grid surfaced automobile bridge. Janie was startled by a beaver splashing it's tail right beside her kayak. The lilly pads were in bloom and it was very beautiful.


Plenty of motels and food nearby




Stevenson is off of Hwy 72 about 50 miles west of Chattanooga, TN. There are signs for the Crow Creek WMA on the hwy.
