About the Chattooga
Deep Gorges, with awe-inspiring scenery that is largely untouched by man, pounding rapids and crystal clear waters are what you can expect to find on the crown jewel of Southeastern whitewater, northeast Georgia’s Chattooga River. The Chattooga was designated a National Wild and Scenic River on May 10, 1974, forever preserving this remarkable place. Whether you want heart pounding rapids, breathtaking scenery, or a combination of both, the Chattooga has something to offer everyone.
The Chattooga River is one of the few remaining free-flowing streams in the Southeast. The setting is primitive. Dense forests and undeveloped shorelines characterize the primitive nature of the area. Floaters, hikers, and fishermen can all enjoy this protected river corridor.
The river begins in mountainous North Carolina as small rivulets, nourished by springs and abundant rainfall, high on the slopes of the Appalachian Mountains – the start of a fifty-mile journey that ends at Lake Tugaloo between Georgia and South Carolina. From its origin, it flows southward for ten miles in North Carolina, and then continues for forty miles as the state boundary between South Carolina and Georgia, dropping almost one-half mile in elevation. (Go to Sumter National Forest for information on paddling the Chattooga and other rivers in South Carolina.)
