Georgia whitewater, Murder Creek

Putnam county, Stanfordville to Lake Sinclare section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-II     3 miles
I have been on this creek several times, and it is a great paddle. If you would like a little longer paddle, you can go on to Putnam beach from Murder creek. This will add a little to your trip. Very worth while. Says Steve

If you're coming from Milledgeville it's not a long drive at all to the starting location. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Georgia tend to be more challenging than the national average, so better not forget that
    the rivers in this state are less manageable. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking there are not so many other good spots for that around here. This is one of a small number of paddling stretches in this river system,
there are a few others too. The wonderful Georgia scenery and the cool fresh water beats anything. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. A good workout and just being out on the river for a while are great attractions for lots of people. This stretch of Murder Creek in Putnam County is 3 miles long and has been rated as a class I-II section by American Whitewater. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit  
away from the river if you want to stay the night, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination.

Briefly about the general area:
Oconee National Forest is a tremendous location to go to; Murder Creek is not far at all from Eatonton. Murder Creek is right by the Twin Bridges Trail.
