NOTE: Due to space and liability issues we do not accept put-ins of privately owned kayaks/canoes/SUPs. NO EXCEPTIONS. (Don’t ask.)
All property along the river is privately owned. Any launches/docks/rope swings/water slides/picnic areas and waterfront parking lots etc. are located on private property owned by homeowners, businesses or Homeowner Associations. If there is a sign on a property stating “No Trespassing” or “No Parking” that sign applies to YOU (and your minor children).
BeachnRiver Kayak Rentals does not authorize or allow use of our property for access to the river for swimming/picnicking/floating without a paid reservation. Only individuals with confirmed reservations and proper identification will be allowed onto the property.
TRESPASSING IS NOT ALLOWED and property is POSTED. Cameras are in use. A “Watch” is in effect. Authorities will be contacted with authorization to arrest if caught trespassing.
WARNING: THERE ARE NO PUBLIC PARKS FOR PICNICKING/SWIMMING/CAMPING/OFF-ROAD VEHICLE USE OR PUBLIC LAUNCHES FOR KAYAKING/CANOEING/S.U.P. ON THE BON SECOUR RIVER OR ON ANY OF ITS TRIBUTARIES. ILLEGALLY PARKED VEHICLES WILL BE TOWED AT OWNER’S EXPENSE.

TRESPASSING IS A CRIMINAL OFFENSE AND IS PUNISHABLE.

BeachnRiver Kayak Rentals personally recommends launching from Graham Creek Nature Preserve in Foley AL for an extended day of vacationing opportunities such as: bicycling, disc golf and a rare opportunity to observe carnivorous plants and other wildflowers during an (easy) 5-mile hike.
