Im kinda new at this but we stayed on a island ist night, near Tidiout, island on second about 20 mi south, 3rd at a rails to trais near Franklin and last at Kennerdale at the state forest camp ground.
On the trip we took in Oct, we started in Kennerdale (not the campground, private) and ended below Emlenton bridge on private.
There are enough public places to camp, we needed campsites with boat and car access.
As to how we get canoes to and from, well, a trip with the scouts is a excursion. June trip was 10 boats, and Oct was 7. June we brought extra drivers and they dropped us off at the start and came to get us at the end. Oct, we left a vehicle at the end, pulled in Fri night, camped, floated Sat, pulled out and went and got the vehicles.
I rednecked my 16ft car hauler into a canoe trailer, needs to be modded some and enlarged because since the 60 stopped where the 20 began, someone said jokingly "Hey, we did 80 of this river, we ought to go for 100" Little did he know at the time that the middle Al river trail is 107 miles long, and the goofy people he (I) was with though it was a GOOD IDEA!!!
2x4's and 1/2 black iron pipe, big washers and lynch pins. Worked ok, I have 4 8' peices of heavy channel aluminum that can extend the capacity to 8 boats with 40 bucks more of pipe.
