Rocky Creek is a narrow, darkly tinted passageway on Eglin AFB. The entire length of the trip is wilderness, but offers only limited spots to get out of your boat. The creek is quite shaded, so it is a good summer or winter destination. Gators live here.

Rocky Creek is a narrow, darkly tinted passageway on Eglin AFB. Went from Eglin 220 to Fred Gannon State Park. About 8 river miles in 4 hours and 15 minutes.

I've posted a picture we took on Mud Landing while paddling Rocky Creek in November 2008. Never having paddled that river and having spent 3 hours navigating deadfall, sweepers and strainers we decided to call our pick-up to come get us at Mud Landing. We beached the boats, ate lunch and then took a little nap inside our kayaks as we waited for our ride. I understand we had paddled the most difficult part of this trip and it would have been easier from Mud Landing to the bay. Oh well, we enjoyed our trip none the less. GaDragonfly

I had a lot of fun on that paddle but couldn't have made it without "a little help from my friends". Definitely not a good winter paddle because we purposely spent time in the water, and had to eat standing in the water or sitting in our boats. Judy, who had done the lower section on a prior paddle, says there is often a sandbar at Mud Landing Bridge when the water level is lower.

Excellent trip report Doug!

If you look at the Eglin map you can see that the Rocky drainage basin is VERY big. So, when that area gets a good rain I would imagine that creek can really get flowing.
