Georgia whitewater, Flint River

Talbot Upson county, Sprewell Bluff State Park to Po Biddy Road section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-III     9.1 miles
I just wanted to let everybody know that the mileage and put in-take out points are not correct on this site. S.B. to po bitty is 12.6 miles. Take out is 7.1 miles from where marked on this map. What is marked as put in and take out is the 5.5 mile stretch from S.B. to hwy 36 (Flint River Outdoor Center.) Please be carefull running yellow jacket if the water is @ 10 ft. Fun but you better have some experience. Water level is taken from
    hwy 36 bridge. Says Joe Livingston

The Flint River at Flat Shoals in Pike County is closed. No boat traffic or foot traffic permitted. Pike County sheriff dept. will give you a ticket and have given tickets. I disagree
with this...but it is what it is... Says V

Water level is great right now 6/2/10. Says Jeannie

Paddling the flint Feb 27, 2010. Plenty of rain this week so should have great water levels. Says EPoling

Don't forget yellow jacket is less than 1 mile below the 36 bridge, GOOD luck! Says Ray

The put-in is not too far from Thomaston, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost. The
natural beauty of Georgia and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water are reasons enough to come here and paddle. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Georgia tend to be more challenging than the national average, so if you're not from around here don't forget that rivers here are less forgiving. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking in this general area you won't find many other paddling places. This stretch of Flint River in Georgia is 9.
