Stillwater River
March 15, 16, 17, 2019

 


We hope to paddle the Stillwater from Covington down to the Englewood Dam area around Dayton. March weather has a lot of variety so one never knows what to expect.

Thursday evening March 14th we can camp at the Covington Community Park right along the river. At that time the restrooms will not be open so it would be everyones responsibility to bring their own bucket or hightail into the woods. Water also is not available so please bring your own.

Friday we can paddle down river to where the Greenville Creek merges and paddle 2 miles upstream to see the beautiful Greenville Falls. You usually see them from the top not the base so it sounds like an exciting photo opportunity. Another 4 or so miles down the Stillwater and we can exit for the day at St Rt 718. That should be around 8 miles for the day. We can again camp at Covington Park for Friday evening.

Saturday the paddle can start at St Rt 718 and go to Garland Road Bridge which is close to 12 miles. Just downstream of the bridge is a field that the Bare Foot Canoe Livery owns. We have permission to camp there which is very primitive same as the Covington Park. Bring everything you need.

Sunday we can paddle from Bare Foot Camp on to the Englewood Dam area for a total of 5-6 miles. Vehicles can be shuttled there.

I am still planning so after the holidays I hope to have more information to share. Stay tuned.

Tony
