Georgia whitewater, Blood Mountain Creek

Lumpkin county, to Dicks Creek section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III-V     1 miles
  The to Dicks Creek stretch of Blood Mountain Creek is 1 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class III-V section of whitewater. The scenic beauty of Georgia and the cool fresh water will make you feel great. A bit of exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors will have you coming back for more. This is a very short section so it's not like you're gonna spend hours on the river in one stretch. You can pitch a tent or park
    your RV at a nearby campground. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Georgia are harder than the national norm, so better not forget that rivers here are not as easy as elsewhere. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have
to drive a bit to get to one, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. The Blue Ridge Mountains scenery is wonderful. If you're coming from Gainesville it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking in this general area you'll find lots of paddling places. This river system has a few good paddling  
sections and the to Dicks Creek section is one of them.

Briefly about the general area:
Vogel State Park is a fine spot to pop by, and Ground Squirrel Gap is in the vicinity, and is a tremendous site. Not enough hours in a day to enjoy the Blue Ridge Mountains. Have a splendid hiking adventure along the DeSoto Falls Trail. Chattahoochee National Forest is a delightful location, and while you're here you can take a hike along the Black Mountain Trail. While you're here at Blood Mountain Creek you will meet lots of folks from nearby Suches. Don't forget to pop by Blood Mountain Cove while you're here at Blood Mountain Creek.
