Georgia whitewater, Whooping Creek

Carroll county, Whooping Creek Road to Highway section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-III     7 miles
There is no way to float a boat in this creek as it is only ankle deep 90% of the way. I have lived on this creek my entire life and have barely been able to find a spotdeep enough to swim in most years. It is however a great place to hike and camp. I dont know much about the adjacent property owners but in 29 years have never been bothered hiking the section between Clem-Lowell road and Hwy 5 (the section you are referring to).The section
    on the opposite side of hwy 5 is owned by Inland Paper and posted. There are a few property owners on shilo church road that will allow you passage to the water. I have floated a canoe to the river on this section after
months of rain, but in general it is also too shallow. There are some deep holes in this section of the creek that offer great bream and bass fishing. The fishing is best closer to the river and it is not uncommon to catch 7# striped bass swimming up from the river looking for food. A gob of nightcawlers or a small rooster tail work excellent for all species. It is a beautiful stream and will not dissappoint for quiet and solitude, but not  
worth the hassle for kayaking. Wait till summer and bring an innertube and a pair of cutt-offs instead. Please remember; respect the property owners and PLEASE clean up your trash. have fun! Says Don Zenefski

The beautiful scenery of Georgia and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water beats anything. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Georgia tend to be more challenging than the national average, so don't forget that rivers here are not as easy as elsewhere. This is one of a small number of paddling stretches in this river system, there are a few others too. This stretch has has enough mileage, good for a one day paddling trip.
