Chattooga National Wild & Scenic River

The Chattooga is recognized as one of the Southeast's premier whitewater rivers and the most famous whitewater paddling spot in the state. Thundering waterfalls, dense forests, flora, fauna and unspoiled nature make this a wilderness paradise. Straddling the SC-Ga border, the river is a magnet for hikers, boaters, and whitewater rafters who boldly take on the river's Class IV and V rapids. But even novices can make it through those rapids on a guided raft trip. The Chattooga is home to more than a hundred types of fish, including three species of trout. The river became a national quest after its starring role in the movie classic "Deliverance," based on James Dickey's novel.
