  The wonderful Habersham/Hall County scenery and the cool fresh water attract people from near and far. This section of Mossy Creek is 2.5 miles long and is a class III-V section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Georgia are harder than the national norm, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that many of the rivers here are not very forgiving. A bit of exercise and a chance to spend
    some time outdoors are great reasons to come. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking in this general area you'll find lots of paddling spots. 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. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. There are a few other sections in this river system that can be paddled as well. The put-in location is a reasonable drive from Cornelia, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost.
