My husband and I went to Birmingham, AL for visiting our friends, who usually go this place on weekends. They had the incredible idea of driving us to Redneck Yacht club. This was our first time kayaking and we loved it! Kayaking tour is a must do for anyone traveling close to Piedmont, AL.

After being well equipped with a cooler with cokes, beers, chips and other snacks, swimsuits and sunscreen, we left our car at the parking spot. There is a van which drives you to the beginning of the river, where you rent individual kayak ($30) or double kayaks ($50) for going down the river. We spent 4.5 hours on this place, it was incredible. There are spots where you can get out and eat, swim or just enjoy yourself and the beautiful views.

Make sure you do the “waterfall”…

There are two kayak outfitters in Piedmont, and both are good for different reasons. At Redneck, you leave your yak at the insert point, drive to the takeout point, and they transport you back to the start point. This is good, as your yak never needs to be loaded. There are changing rooms and restrooms here, and the staff is friendly. The driveway is a bit scary for city slickers, lol. I have rented from Redneck, and the kayak was in good shape. The takeout method is well worth the trip!! AWESOME! You'll see.....

This is the second year that we have rented the pavilion pitched multiple tents and had a great time at the RYC! Owners Hank and Teresa Nelson have been great hosts both years. These days, people want to tell you that it is about the customer experience, well this is true, and it was great, but what they want to know, and they do ask, is are you having a good time? Did you have fun on the creek? They really do care and these days, that counts!

It was HORRIBLE!! The cabin had no indoor bathroom. There was a naked doll leaned against the bathroom with black bondage tape on it. The lady dropped us out on the wrong end of the creek, so we had to drag our kayaks more than we got to ride in it. The cabin looked like a shed you would put your lawnmower in. No one ask how our trip went. They took our money and disappeared. I was ready to let them have it! I wanted my money back. I paid $100 for my children and I to kayak, but that didn't happen in ankle deep water. I'm so ANGRY.

Nice folks, good, reasonably priced shuttle service. Great location on Terrapin Creek. A little off the beaten path so make sure you are not lead astray by the GPS. We have only used them for shuttle, but they have kayak rentals. This is a beautiful 3 + hour float on a canopy shrouded, initimate river with nice little shoals.

We spent Labor Day Weekend camping at the RYC. Great rates when everyone else is price gouging. We had fun kayaking the short float! A little rocky, but fun! The people like Jennifer, Hank, Josh and Greg are so sweet and very helpful! It’s too bad the owners don’t re-invest some of that money they make back into the campgrounds. Bathrooms are horrible, dirty, not sufficient, campsites unleveled, trip hazards, no bbq pits for campers, no electrical adapters, water tap was not accessible (really redneck), gravel road in poor shape. It wouldn’t take much to make the improvements needed. I guess this was the part of the Redneck Experience. Would go back to kayak, but not to camp.

Very easy to get a shuttle or rent. Nice public restroom at the put in. The paddling is easy and scenery is beautiful. The only drawback is that the route can get extremely crowded. There are usually quite a few boomboxes playing. Also, there is a dam on the long route where it's safest to take out kayak/canoe and drag it around the concrete patio and down the steps at No Worries Outfitters.

We carried a group of 18 to the Redneck Yacht Club. We had 3 families with 12 kids between us. (ages 8 - 18) We were all newbies and didn't have any idea what to expect. We carried our own kayaks and only paid the $5 each per boat. (includes the shuttle and the use of their put in/take out and parking facilities). The Redneck Yacht Club facilities leave a bit to be desired. The shuttle van got the job done, but it was less than stellar. The particular one we rode in had the "Redneck" theme nailed. It was older and the inside was covered in crude graffiti. I wasn't there for a fancy ride, though, so we didn't really care. The bathroom at the take out area is TERRIBLE. It has a toilet inside a sort of shack with building materials strewn about. A little work on that facility would go a long way. Still, we made it work and got our group all changed into dry clothes. Again, our group didn't show up wanting plush accommodations, so we didn't really mind. Just don't expect nice bathrooms. We were there for the river. The staff at the RYC was very friendly and helpful. Our group had a great time for a first experience!
Some things to note for newbies: It takes about 5 hours to do the trip. Plan accordingly. Carry dry bags (or double bagged ziplocks) with snacks or lunch. Our group of kids needed snacks several times. The beginning stretch had some fast moving water when we went. It was just enough "whitewater rapids" for beginners that our kids loved it, but it caught us off guard to start with that right away. All of the rapids/swift current are in the first half. The second half requires a lot of paddling. Our group got tired, but we managed fine. The scenery is excellent. There are many very picturesque places that we enjoyed. Remember to take a look around and take it all in. When we had about 45 minutes of the trip left, we came upon a small dam with signs saying that we had to port (get out and carry the kayak). This was at the take out point for another company. We were a little confused at what exactly to do because we weren't expecting it. We managed to get our whole group of 18 out of the water to walk around the little dam. The area is pretty rocky and the place to get your kayak back in is kind of steep. It was a bit difficult for us to get all 12 kids out and back in. This area was quite congested with people when we went. It was all very doable, but it would've been nice to of had a heads-up on this one. The stretch of river after the little dam (past the "No Worries" company take-out point) had better flow and our tired arms were able to rest a little more. Also, during the last stretch, the crowd thinned out significantly.....as the river was VERY crowded when we went.
All in all....we had a fantastic time and want to come back. Everyone from the 8 year olds to the adults enjoyed the day. We will most likely use Redneck Yacht Club again when we do.

It probably doesn't help that it was Memorial Day, and that kayaking is the new "dad", but we did not have a good experience. We all had our own kayaks, so we just shuttled, which was only $5. However, we did not ride in a van, we loaded up in the back of someone's pickup truck. At the end of the float there used to be a wooden shoot that your kayak would be attached to and pulled up out of the water. (This was really part of the fun of using these guys). Not to mention it was really nice getting your kayak out of the water. They now have a landing area (very small) that tou come out of water and then drive your vehicle down to load up your boat. I would not recommend driving your vehicle down there unless you have 4-wheel drive. It is a steep climb out, and mainly gravel, so you will have a hard time getting back up. It was just very unprofessional. A couple that was floating with us forgot their life jackets. They asked the redneck people if they could borrow one (you would think since we were using their service they would let us borrow one). They would not. So we floated a short distance from the beginning to the next company (Terrapin Outdoor Center) and they allowed those 2 to "borrow" two life vests. We signed no individual releases for the float, it was all just unprofessional. We only paid $5 as mentioned, so we weren't out much money, but will definitely pay an extra $5 each to use another company.

Very Nice people.. Easy in and out access. rental process was fast and easy as well. We rented one kyak and had two of our own. the rental kyak was very stable. if you take young kids check to make sure the water discharge levels are not high.. lots of places to stop and picnic and swim..
