Georgia whitewater, Little John Creek

Hall county, Skitts Mountain Road to Chattahoochee section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

  Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Georgia is often more difficult than elsewhere, so better not forget that many of the sections here are not safe for beginners. Getting a good workout and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great attractions for lots of people. The natural beauty of Hall County and the playfulness of the water beats anything. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem
    and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, there are lots of good rivers for that around here. This is one of a small number of paddling
sections in this river system, there are a few others too. The put-in is not too far from Cornelia, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp.
