in Alabama is often tougher than elsewhere, so don't forget that lots of rivers here are not for beginners. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, in this general area you'll find lots of paddling places. Getting a good workout and just hanging out with mother nature have a lot of people coming here. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp.

Briefly about the general area:
You're sure to stumble upon some smiling folks from Leesburg here, and Desoto State Park is a splendid place to go. Visiting Little River Canyon National Preserve is just something you need to do if you haven't yet, and Starling Gap is another magnificent location to go to nearby. This is such a wonderful river. Wolf Creek ordinarily gets lots of rainfall. The month of March is the wettest with most of the rain; the driest month is October.
