Inclement Weather & Early Closings

The team at the Savannah-Ogeechee Canal is small. In the event of unfavorable weather such as rain, severe heat or cold, or flooding, there is a high likelihood for the canal trails to be closed early.

If you think the weather might be unfavorable today, give Connie a call at ‭+1 (912) 665-6565‬.

If you arrive at our site and we are closed early, we apologize. However, our trail at Half Moon Lake always remains open and free to the public. Directions to the Half Moon Lake Trailhead are below.

Half Moon Trailhead

Halfmoon Lake Trail offers a peaceful, 1000-meter walk through nature, located just a short distance from our main site. The trail begins with a sturdy wooden bridge that crosses over a scenic, swampy river - a popular spot for spotting alligators in their natural setting. Shortly after the bridge, the trail continues as a straight path through a quiet woodland area. The surrounding trees provide a calm and serene atmosphere, ideal for a leisurely walk or a moment of reflection. The trail concludes at Canal Bank Road, making it a convenient and enjoyable excursion for those visiting the area.
