Georgia whitewater, Stekoa Creek

Rabun county, Timber Bluff Road off US Route 76 to Chattooga River section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III-V     6.75 miles
  This section of Stekoa Creek is 6.75 miles long and is a class III-V section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state is often more difficult than elsewhere, so better not forget that rivers here are not as easy as elsewhere. Getting some good exercise and just hanging out with mother nature are great reasons to come. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby.
    This stretch is mid length, it's perfect for a one day trip. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up
quick. The Blue Ridge Mountains scenery is wonderful. This river system has a few good paddling sections and the Timber Bluff Road off US Route 76 to Chattooga River section is one of them. The beautiful scenery of Georgia and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream will make you feel great. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking there are lots of good rivers for that around here. The put-in is not too far from Toccoa,  
as you can see on the road map further down.

Briefly about the general area:
The good people of Lakemont like to hang out close by, and Tallulah Gorge State Park is a pleasant site to have a look at. You just can't envision the amount of outdoors amusing stuff the Blue Ridge Mountains has to offer. There are good sites to look at along the Chattooga Trail, and Sky Valley is a good local ski area. At this river you will always have a good time. Going for a hike on the Bartram Trail is always a nice adventure. Black Rock Mountain State Park is a perfect place. The warmest time of the year at Stekoa Creek comes with high temperatures in the 80's.
