Where do you park your truck if you are going to take out at I65? Says Eric

This stretch of Mulberry Fork is 10.8 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class I-II section. The sections for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in Alabama are often more challenging than in other states, so don't forget that many of the rivers here are not very forgiving. The starting location is a reasonable drive from Cullman, please
    print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you wonít get lost. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking there are lots of good spots for that around here. Getting some good exercise and just hanging out
with mother nature are great reasons to come. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. This stretch is long enough for an overnight trip if you take your time, so go ahead and pack your sleeping bag. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. There are a few other stretches in this river  
system that can be paddled as well.
