07:23:11, Georgia, 32° 37.552’N, 83° 32.544’W – 19 miles south of Macon I put in on the Okmulgee River at Bullard Landing.
To get to the landing I drove down a dirt road through acres of clear cut forest that a railroad track cuts through. The dirt road is a bit bumpy and mixed with gravel except for one sandy section that could be a problem in the rain so watch the weather before you set out.
I paddled against a moderately swift current up the Okmulgee River. The river at this section is deep and winds like a snake whipping the water around the turns. High cliffs have been cut out by the current. That’s what makes this part of the river attractive and worth the effort. Other than an occasional deadfall the Okmulgee was passable, quiet and secluded.
