Bogue Chitto River is a major attraction in the area. The river is
gentle flowing with sections
of swift water and small rapids. You’ ll glide along on the river
- canoeing or tubing through the shade of overhanging trees and into
sunlit waters. As the currents quicken, you hear the sound of small rapids
just around the bend. Get in position and follow the flow.
There are several float trips of different length. You may bring your
own canoe or rent a canoe or tube from one of the outfitters on Dogwood
Trail (Shuttle service provided by outfitters when you rent). A concrete
boat ramp with parking area is located in the park.
After a float on
the Bogue Chitto River, try your hand at Magees Creek in Tylertown.
Magees Creek is a small stream, described as “a sparkling
jewel of a stream.” Smaller canoes are the best choice to navigate
its twists and turns. A carry-down boat ramp for access to Magees Creek
is located at Holmes Water Park off Highway 198 in Tylertown just minutes
from Bogue Chitto Water Park.
