The opportunities for recreation are incredibly diverse and varied. This wild and free flowing river system with the beauty of its pristine, natural state allows for the possibility of floating from a small headwater stream down the entire river to the ocean.

Wildlife viewing along this river is highly sought after and treasured. Expect a large untamed coastal river with a wide flood plain featuring extensive cypress swamps. IMPO: Contact an outfitter or obtain a detailed map preferably with GIS from the Pascagoula Wildlife Managment Area Office for guidance. Without a guide, canoe at your own risk.
