Georgia whitewater, Tiger Creek

Rabun county, Lakemont to Tallulah River section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III     1 miles
  The natural beauty of Rabun County and the cool fresh water make the trip here worthwhile. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state is often more difficult than elsewhere, so keep in mind that a lot of the rivers here are not suitable for beginners. Great exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors will make you glad you came. This section is very short so it's not like you're gonna spend hours on the river in one stretch.
    There are a few other sections in this river system that can be paddled as well. If you're coming from Cornelia it's not a long drive at all to the starting location, if you're not familiar with the area there's a road map
further down the page. The Lakemont to Tallulah River stretch of Tiger Creek in Rabun County is 1 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class III section. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking in this general area you'll find lots of paddling rivers. Lodging is available near the river, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. There are campgrounds quite near the  
river where you can camp. Whitewater paddling here in the Blue Ridge Mountains is a great experience.

Briefly about the general area:
Go for a hike on the Bartram Trail, and this is a popular site for folks from Lakemont. Yeah, come up here to the Blue Ridge Mountains for a delightful time. Sky Valley has good slopes and a friendly staff; naturally, everyone loves Tallulah Gorge State Park. This river is so good. Not far from Tiger Creek you locate Persimmon Point; pleasant hiking is available along the Chattooga Trail. Black Rock Mountain State Park is a glorious location to go if you're at Tiger Creek.
