Forked River
Kayaked down the Wading from Hawkins to Godfrey with the kids yesterday. I realize it was a week day, but we only saw 7 other people total on the water or hanging out. Wading Pines campground was pretty sparse and quiet There were only a few people relaxing near Godfrey bridge and nobody at Hawkins bridge. The water level was very low, and for some long stretches I just walked and pulled the kayak behind me. Weather was perfect but the highlight was a turkey that was on 1 bank and when I approached put out its wings and ran/flew across the water to the other side. What was the bridge that goes across the river about halfway between the 2 bridges. You can see the pilings in the water.
