Great location if you're interested in a half day canoe or kayak trip down the Winding River. An interesting drive down some dirt roads to get to this launch. Expect narrow, winding river with lots of sharp curves.
Approximate Trip Times:
Hawkins Bridge to Godgrey Bridge: 2 1/2 hours

*During droughts, expect to be dragging and/or walking it the first few miles.
*During heavy rains with floods, the banks tend to overflow making the river one big lake. You'll have a hard time telling which way the river is supposed to go.
