- Kayak through a forest of spanish moss covered cypress trees
- Amazing night views
- Keep an eye out for gators!
This spot is easy to find. Just off the GA highway 122 is the Banks Lake Wildlife Refuge. You can either bring your own kayak/canoe or rent one for a few dollars.
The adventure begins once you're in the water. Paddle out of the small loading dock area and the entire lake is in front of you. Pick a direction and go! Explore the pockets of cypress trees that are scattered all over the lake. Paddle through them and just get lost!
Find a good spot to float, be quiet, and you won't have to wait long to meet the local residents. Alligators are everywhere! There is also a large osprey nest in the back corner of the lake.
- Canoe or kayak
- Cash if you need to rent one
- Pack a lunch or dinner! Once you're out on the lake you'll probably wanna stay out.
