Morgan Falls Overlook Park kayaking

Posted by on October 22, 2013

This park is just an amazingly cool place to kayak for the day.  We arrived early enough to see the fog lifting from the Bulls Sluice Lake.  It never gets old to see that happen but you need to arrive early because it burns off fast.

Bulls Sluice lake is a must see if you haven’t been there and the best way to see it is from a kayak.  Its all flat water so it’s very safe for beginners but will provide plenty of scenery.

This event was just a great time and we did it a bit different from past events.  We started and finished at the same place.  Since it is a pretty large lake, you get plenty of places to navigate. There is open water kayaking, there are islands with shallow marshlands, and there are some large coves that provide good protection from the afternoon sun.

We had terrific new guests Jodie, Bruce, Andrew, Liv (2 years old) and Nate and they all handled their kayaks like pros.  They arrived early enough to see the morning fog and escape the afternoon sun.  Thanks again you guys, I appreciate it.  I also appreciated the cigar Nate allowed me to have.  Nothing like a good relax with a kayak and a cigar.

It also retired my iPhone to the waters of the Chattahoochee. That’s what you get when you take pictures over the open waters and don’t have a waterproof case. Anyway, it was time for a new one. So I was able to upgrade.  I try to put a positive spin on it.

The scenery at Morgan Falls Overlook Park (Bull Sluice Lake) is amazing. The wildlife is always out there. We saw beaver and happened to jump a few whitetail deer while navigating some of the small inland cut throughs. If you want to kayak here you should navigate through the islands. Its like kayaking through the Amazon but you don’t have to worry about all the jungle snakes.

In all, this place is the best for beginners.  I would definitely recommend this park if you feel a bit nervous about kayaking your first time.  But its also a very scenic park that offers tons to see and do for all skill levels.  Let us know if you want to check out the park and we’ll provide the kayaks.

Thanks again to the crew and cheers from Kayak Guy Atlanta. If you want to join us for a trip like this, call (678-920-3944) or email (Scott@KayakGuyAtlanta.com).

    I drove over there for the first time today. I looked for signs about launching from the dock but did not see any. I assume this is not against park rules?

      There are 2 places to dock there. You can park on the upper lot and walk the trail down. Or go to the bottom of the dam and there is a vehicle accessible ramp. Both are free.
