Boating

With 10 lakes, the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway has more than 44,000 surface acres of water for boaters to enjoy. Several public boat ramps (or access areas) are conveniently located along the waterway, as well as several private Marinas that provide fuel, supplies, boat repair, rentals and other boater needs.

There is a $5.00 launching fee at some of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers-operated boat ramps. This is a per-day fee that can be paid at the honor box if there is no attendant available. An Annual Pass is also available and allows a visitor to enter an area without paying a per-day fee for one year.

Each land or water related activity provides not only enjoyment and challenges to visitors, but inherent dangers as well. When these dangers are combined with the inexperience or inattention of the participant, accidents are likely to occur. In order to avoid these potential accidents, the following is a list of safety precautions that are suggested to help insure everyone’s safety.

Park Rangers on the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway host Water Safety Programs each year to individuals ranging in age from school children to adults. For information about setting up an on or off-site water safety program, please call the Bay Springs Resource Office at (662) 423-1287 or the Columbus Area Office at (662) 245-5500.

Boating Safety Tips

  • Be alert for underwater hazards such as submerged stumps, logs and rocks.
  • Be careful when approaching the shoreline because the depth of water varies.    
  • Never dive into water of unknown depth.
  • Be alert to hazards such as poisonous plants, insects and snakes.    
  • Keep children under close supervision at all times, especially near the water.
  • Wear life vests at all times.    
  • Do not use alcohol while in, on or around the water.
  • Let someone know where you will be and when you plan to return.    
  • Swim in designated swimming areas.
  • Do not overload your boat. Remember, safe boating is not overloading.
