Mullica River – 8-Hour Paddle – For Experienced Paddlers

The Mullica River canoe and kayak trail is a favorite for paddlers looking for a longer journey through Wharton State Forest. Paddlers on this trip begin at Atsion Lake dam and end at Pleasant Mills.


The Mullica River is currently closed due to low water levels. We hope to reopen this trip soon, but it is fully dependent on rainfall and water levels. In the meantime, consider a trip down the Batsto River! The Batsto is not as affected by low water.


Beginning at the Route 206 put-in by the Atsion Lake spillway, this trip winds 11 miles through the heart of Wharton State Forest to the take out at Pleasant Mills. Kayaking and canoeing is a truly incredible experience on the Mullica River. You’ll move through narrow passages surrounded by tall cedar stands, navigate the twists and turns before the rivers opens to wider areas fringed with beautiful white and yellow flowers of the water- lily and purple flowers of pickerel weed. This trip is recommended only for experienced paddlers.

Many times you will find yourself surround by silence with only the buzz and hum of nature to accompany you on your journey.


Trip begins at Pinelands Adventures headquarters.
