The Victoria Bryant State Park to GA 145 stretch of Rice Creek in Georgia is 1 miles long and is a class III section of whitewater according
    to American Whitewater. This is an extremely short stretch so better bring some good walking shoes. The wonderful Georgia scenery and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream will make you feel great. Since
you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way in this general area you'll find lots of paddling places. Getting some good exercise and just being out on the river for a while are sure to keep you coming back for more. The Victoria Bryant State Park to GA 145 stretch is one of a few paddling stretches in this river system. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance  
then no problem but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. The campgrounds here at Rice Creek are pretty good.
