Whitewater & Flatwater Paddling

The Chattooga River, classified as a national wild and scenic river in 1974, is one of the few remaining free-flowing streams in the Southeast. Group rafting trips or individual canoe or kayaking trips promise wet thrills along the river’s class III, IV and V rapids.
