Lock and Dam section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.
CLASS III 0.1 miles
The average Georgia whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be harder to run than those in other states, so don't forget that a lot of the rivers here are not suitable for beginners. The scenic beauty of Georgia and the cool fresh water have people coming here. Coosa River doesn't have a lot of paddling stretches, the Lock and Dam stretch is the only one. Great exercise and just being out on the river for a while have a lot of people
coming here. This is a very short stretch so it's not like you're gonna spend hours on the river in one stretch. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but do book a
room before you come because it is a very popular destination. This section of Coosa River is 0.1 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class III section of whitewater.
