Memphis Boat Center is proud to extend an invitation to you, your friends, your family, and whoever else you want to pack into a boat and travel close to ninety miles with by water. June 17th-19th will be a weekend full of exciting adventure, primitive camping, and TONS of boating. The lake crew at Memphis Boat Center will be traveling from Aqua Yacht Harbor in Pickwick all the way down the waterway to Joe Wheeler State Park in Alabama. This epic journey will take you across three state lines, down a lock, and through one of the most beautiful waterways running across the South.
You need some details don’t you?
The morning of the 17th we will depart from Aqua and begin our long journey down the waterway to Joe Wheeler. Memphis Boat Center will be piloting two boats, so you’re going to have to bring your own. We want a fleet of boats cruising down the waterway with us! Once we arrive at the campsite, which will be primitive, the fun begins. Joe Wheeler State Park is a 2,550 acre park with tons of amazing trails, waterways, and other activities to get your camping spirit fired up. If the primitive camping does not appeal to you they offer rental cabins for the weekend, but you’ll have to pay for them. Cabin rentals can be made at this number 256-685-2656 or by going to their website.
Personally, I don’t recommend sleeping inside, the scenery is just too beautiful. We here at Memphis Boat Center hope to bring everyone on this trip together for a fantastic weekend on the water and out in Nature. If you have any questions please feel free to call us, and if you plan on joining us for this epic journey please comment on our Facebook page so we know who you are or come into the shop and ask for Houston!
