Carroll county, Banning Mill Road to Johns Mill section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-III+     3 miles
  If you're coming from LaGrange it's not a long drive at all to the starting location, as you can see on the road map further down. The Banning Mill Road to Johns Mill section of Snake River in Carroll County is 3 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class II-III+ section. There are some good stretches to paddle in this river system, the Banning Mill Road to Johns Mill stretch is one of them. This section is
    quite short so no need to bring snacks. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking in this general area you'll
find lots of paddling rivers. If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside Georgia you might find the rivers here a bit more challenging, so if you're not from around here don't forget that many of the sections here are not safe for beginners. Getting a good workout and just hanging out with mother nature have a lot of people coming here. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. The nature scenery of Carroll  
County and the water flowing gracefully down Snake River have people coming here.
