Southern Canoe Outfitters

Southern Canoe Outfitters on the Tallapoosa River. Peaceful floating, clean water, great fishing, wildlife, class 1 rapids, wooded scenery and family fun. Whether you spend the day relaxing on the river, looking for great photo opportunities, enjoying a group event, or kicking back for a quiet overnight camping trip, Southern Canoe Outfitters can get you there. Located in the heart of Cleburne County, which carries you through the breathtaking scenery of the Lloyd Owens Canoe Trail, this family-owned business is in the business of helping groups and individuals enjoy the beauty and pleasures of the river. Get ready for some fun! Enjoy canoeing, kayaking and camping along 44 miles of the Tallapoosa River. It has been designated by the U.S. Department of Interior as one of the cleanest rivers in the Eastern United States. Sandbars and steep rocky banks are just a part of the scene. You may also see ducks, raccoons, whitetail deer and numerous species of waterfowl. The river harbors multiple species of fish and mussels. Crayfish, salamanders, frogs and turtles keep things interesting. The best fishing is for spotted bass and bream, but red-eye bass, black bass, crappie, carp and catfish are plentiful. Each season offers a special view. Spring brings mountain laurel and azaleas. With fall comes a different palate of blazing colors. Southern Canoe Outfitters is located within a short drive of many Southeastern destinations, including Cheaha State Park, Talladega National Forest, and the Chief Ladiga/Silver Comet Bike Trail.
