A fall favorite for more than a decade, Fall Float on the Flint features the best of the lower Flint River’s playful shoals, beautiful blue hole springs, soaring limestone bluffs and abundant wildlife. We do it every year because, well, it’s just a great paddle trip. Over two days of paddling, the route takes in some 36 miles of the Flint from Rocky Bend Flint River Retreat in Newton to the backwaters of Lake Seminole. Along the way, we stop at deceptively-named springs like Hog Parlor and Bovine. Don’t let the names fool you, they are breathtakingly beautiful. If the temperature and timing is right, some of us have been known to take a plunge from one of those riverside limestone bluffs. Long miles make this a challenging paddle for beginners, but the scenery makes the effort worth it. Camping is at Rocky Bend Flint River Retreat situated on the west bank of the river with tentsites, RV sites and rental cabins. Showers and restroom facilities and indoor dining are provided, along with delicious catered meals. Registration fees are expected to range from $205-$360 and includes tentsites with showers and restrooms, six catered meals, Paddle Georgia t-shirt or other swag, shuttle service, educational programs, Fall Float boat decal, river maps, guide service and lots of good times!
