The Mobile-Tensaw Delta is our nation’s second largest river delta. It encompasses a 10 mile-wide marsh, cypress-tupelo swamp and bottomland hardwood ecosystem. The Delta has over 50 rare and endangered plant and animal species known to inhabit its wetlands and waterways. The Bartram Canoe Trail system provides opportunities for recreational boaters, specifically canoes and kayakers, to enjoy the rivers, streams, lakes sloughs and bayous of the Delta. Currently the Alabama Department of Conservation State Lands Division maintains day use and overnight trails as well as two land-based and four floating platform campsites.
