CLOSURE ANNOUNCEMENT - due to damages and issues caused by hurricane Sally, PERDIDO RIVER WMA/PERDIDO RIVER CANOE TRAIL is CLOSED to all vehicular traffic until further notice. We will keep you posted on when roads will be reopened.

Alabama’s Perdido River Canoe Trail is a 19 mile segment along the Perdido River in Baldwin County. This portion of the river is characterized by gently flowing tannin stained waters over southern white sands. The Perdido’s many bends create numerous sandbars providing ample opportunities for canoeists and kayakers to take breaks or have lunch. The Alabama State Lands Division has provided multiple access points along the river with two launches and one boat ramp. Canoeists and kayakers have the ability to stay overnight along the river on one of the six reservable camping shelters or by pitching a tent on one of the sandbars located in front of the shelters. Camping is not allowed on sandbars located between designated camping areas.
