An Exciting Paddling Expedition with College Friends in Kingsland and Surrounding Waterways

Picture this: a bunch of college buddies, ready to take on the world, or at least the waters of Camden County. Our journey began at Unleashed Camden in the city of Kingsland, Georgia, where we traded textbooks for axes and let loose with some ax throwing. It was a hilarious start to our adventure, setting the tone for the wild ride ahead.

Packing for our paddling escapade was a mix of practicality and spontaneity. We had the basics covered – kayaks, paddles, and life jackets – but we also threw in some snacks, sunscreen, and a Bluetooth speaker for those impromptu jam sessions on the water. You know, essentials.

Day one started with us gliding along the St. Marys River waterways, soaking in the sun and scenery. It was all smooth sailing until someone accidentally splashed water on someone else’s phone – cue the chaos. But hey, it’s all part of the adventure, right?

After a day of paddling, we retreated to our cabin at the KOA Campgrounds, where we fired up the grill and cracked open a few cold ones. The night was spent swapping stories and roasting marshmallows under the stars, the perfect end to a perfect day.

The next morning, we awoke early and headed for a quick breakfast and coffee in Kingsland; we set our sights on the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, ready to channel our inner explorers. Navigating through the maze of water channels was like something out of a movie – suspenseful, exhilarating, and just a tad nerve-wracking. But we made it through with plenty of laughs and memories.

By nightfall, we were craving some local flavor, so we headed to Outerbanks, a hotspot known for its good vibes and even better food. Burgers, fries, and a round of cold brews – what more could you ask for?

Our final day was spent on the Crooked River, where we paddled alongside flocks of migrating birds and soaked up the last of the summer sun. It was the perfect way to wrap up our adventure, a fitting finale to an unforgettable trip.


As we said our goodbyes to Kingsland and the friends we’d made along the way, I couldn’t help but feel a sense of gratitude for the memories we’d created and the bonds we’d strengthened this summer. College is all about seizing the moment and making the most of every opportunity, and this trip was no exception. Until next time, adventure awaits!
