Georgia whitewater, Mulberry Creek

Harris county, GA Route 209 to West Point Lake section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III+(V+)     1 miles
It should be noted that the class 5 section is actually a set of falls approximately 20' high that can only be navigated, with caution, by foot.  Be aware there are large gators here also. Says Brobdingnagian

The starting location is a reasonable drive from Columbus, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost. If you've been out of state whitewater rafting and kayaking you might find the rivers
    here more demanding, so you'd better keep in mind that rivers here are not as easy as elsewhere. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way around here you won't find a large number of other spots.
There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. This stretch of Mulberry Creek in Georgia is 1 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class III+(V+) section. There are a few other stretches in this river system that can be paddled as well. This is a very short stretch so it's not like you're gonna spend hours on the river in one stretch. The nature scenery of Harris County and the water flowing gracefully down  
Mulberry Creek make the trip here worthwhile. A bit of exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors have people coming from far and near.
