Comments: 

-approx. 1.5 miles downriver to Mullica River

Many small creeks to explore upriver. (very easy to get lost - use navigational aids) Be very vigilant of powerboat and personal watercraft traffic.

You can camp at nearby Bass River State Forest. (There is NO access to the Bass River from the state forest & campground)
