Georgia whitewater, Chattahoochee River

Muscogee county, City Mills Dam to Dillingham Street Bridge section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-III     0.5 miles
I want to plan a kayak trip down the river for this July. Can you assist me with this? We are from Florida and I have only kayaked once in Georgia. Says Karin Arellano

The natural beauty of Muscogee County and the water flowing gracefully down Chattahoochee River are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside this state you might find the rivers here a bit more challenging,
    so you'd better keep in mind that many runs in this state are not easy. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, there are not so many other good rivers for that around here. A good workout
and spending some quality time in nature are great reasons to come. Lodging is available near the river, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. This is an extremely short section so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. The put-in location is a reasonable drive from Columbus, there's a road map further down the  
page with more info on that. This stretch of Chattahoochee River is 0.5 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class II-III section. This is one of a small number of paddling stretches in this river system, there are a few others too.
