We got thru Wheeler Lock around 4:00 pm on the 4th and proceeded to the Joe Wheeler State Park Marina at mile 277. The Marina is new and very cheap (75 cents a foot) and the lodge and cabins are beautiful. Check out was not until 2:00pm on Sunday so we took advantage of the extra time and hiked some of the nature trails (saw several deer). We headed out around 1:00 to make our next anchorage at Limestone Creek mile 310.8. Wheeler Lake is 74 miles long and has 1,063 miles of shoreline. Kind of felt like the Mississippi River (wide and boring).
