Georgia whitewater, Frogtown Creek

Lumpkin county, US 19 to US 19 at Turners Corner section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III-V(V+)     2.9 miles
  The beautiful scenery of Georgia and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream make the trip here worthwhile. If you're coming from Gainesville it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location, if you're not familiar with the area there's a road map further down the page. There are a few other stretches in this river system that can be paddled as well. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. Great exercise
    and just being out on the river for a while are great attractions for lots of people. The beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains scenery is an added bonus. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but
if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Georgia is often more difficult than elsewhere, so keep in mind that rivers here are not as easy as elsewhere. This is a bit of a short stretch so better bring some good walking shoes. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, around here you'll find a large number of good places. This stretch of Frogtown  
Creek in Lumpkin County is 2.9 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class III-V(V+) section.

Briefly about the general area:
The DeSoto Falls Trail is a good hiking trail in the vicinity of Frogtown Creek, and Hester Gap is a splendid site to spend some time. And that's not all the things you can do here in the Blue Ridge Mountains. There is a delightful hiking trail in the vicinity of Frogtown Creek called the Whitly Gap Trail, and Vogel State Park is a tremendous site to go. Coming to this river is always a good idea. If you're stopping by Frogtown Creek from Cleveland, you won't be the only one.
