We offer a short float (3-4 hours) & a long float (5-6 hours). Depending on which float you're doing, we will direct you to the take-out to park, we shuttle you back to the launch area, 3850 County Road 175 Piedmont, AL 36272 (all trips begin here) and you float back to your vehicle.
Don't overthink it, it's so simple...at the end of your trip you will be back at your vehicle.
We have 3 locations-(launch area & 2 take-outs).
We do not haul personal boats! You must drop them off at the launch area, then go park according to which float you're doing. We have directions for you at the launch area.
Only renting? No personal boats?...same thing, come to the launch area and get directions to the correct parking location.
*Due to Covid 19, we are only shuttling the driver (to cut down on shuttle riders), drop off any passengers at the launch area so only the driver rides the shuttle back. (we don't expect you to drop off unattended children), but help us cut down on shuttle passengers as best as you can.
Our shuttles run continuosly between 8 AM & 3PM. No Long Floats after 12!
Nelson's Redneck Yacht Club is located on beautiful, spring-fed Terrapin Creek in Northeast Alabama, in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Terrapin Creek is a clear, calm creek. This trip is a fun, easy float, with just a few small rapids. The long float has a small dam that you can go over, or pull your boat out and go around. There is plenty of warning, it won't sneak up on ya!
Come visit this hidden treasure. A float trip under a brilliant Alabama blue sky is good for the soul! No skill required, just a relax and enjoy the scenery float trip for all ages!
We start shuttling and launching at 8:00 am, we shuttle until 3:00 pm. Floaters have until 7 PM to get to their take-out, this allows floaters to stop and enjoy the creek along the way, park on sandbars to picnic, swim, fish, and just enjoy the day with your family and friends. We are open 7 days a week seasonally, (weather permitting).
We are pet friendly!
