There are plenty of other sections in this river system that can be paddled as well. The wonderful Georgia scenery and the playfulness
    of the water are reasons enough to come here and paddle. The Blue Ridge Mountains scenery is wonderful. This section of Chattooga River in Georgia is 13 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class II-III+(IV)
section of whitewater. If you have the time you can make this a two day trip, so go ahead and pack your sleeping bag.

The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. Getting your paddling muscles activated  
and just hanging out with mother nature have a lot of people coming here.
