Anchored Just Below Gainesville-Heflin Lock…mm266

This spot worked for our itinerary and puts us 50 river-miles from Demopolis. Cat Sand Dollar had the same idea (as seen above).

Waterway Guide calls it “Tombigbee Oxbow”. State route 39 passes nearby, and a nearby cell tower means modern civilization is in-reach!

Don’t bother if you don’t have confidence in your ground tackle. There is a noticeable current running through here that’ll make you wonder all night long.

But if you anchor out frequently enough to know “it works!”, come on in, there is plenty of water here. (The inside curve may be slower current than the outside curve.)

This lock uses VHF 16>14.
