Georgia whitewater, Mill Creek

Murray county, Along Mill Creek Road section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III-V+     3 miles
  Whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state is often more difficult than elsewhere, so don't forget that the rivers in this state are less manageable. The Along Mill Creek Road section of Mill Creek in Murray County is 3 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class III-V+ section. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one,
    but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. This is one of a small number of paddling stretches in this river system, there are a few others too. The beautiful scenery of Georgia and the
beautiful way the water current moves down the stream make the trip here worthwhile. Great exercise and spending some quality time in nature have a lot of people coming here. 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 is a short paddling stretch so no need to bring snacks. The starting point is not too far from Dalton, please print out a copy of the  
road map further down the page so you won’t get lost.

Briefly about the general area:
Hickey Gap is a good location to explore nearby, and people from Cisco love to come here. On a pleasant day it's a wonderful idea to spend the day at Parksville Beach. There is a delightful hiking trail close to Mill Creek called the Grassy Mountain Tower Trail. A pleasant place like Fort Mountain State Park in close proximity to Mill Creek is too glorious to leave out, and close by you locate the Songbird Trail which is a delightful hiking trail. Summertime highs at Mill Creek mostly tend to be in the 80's.
