Tallapoosa River

Trip Overview

The water was shallow and we were told that vit was 3 hour float and "the best" to launch from. It had a lot of fallen trees and shallow areas we had to get out and walk a good bit of this river. Got out at Broad St in a little over 2 hours. I recommend Horseshoe Bend but this site can be muddy, crowded, a lot of garbage on the ground, but the take out is within walking distance back to your vehicle. It's a 1-2 hour float around the bend. Shallow water and most people tube here. No parking fee. On busy summer days parking spots are rare.
