The Chattooga River is the wild and scenic river that divides South Carolina and Georgia. The Chattooga originates at the base of Whiteside Mountain in North Carolina, a towering 4800 foot granite wall where many creeks and streams converge. The Chattooga’s watershed extends for 180,000 acres, creating the most fantastic ever-changing whitewater river in the area for those seeking a challenge. Not only does the river pose a challenge to whitewater enthusiasts, but it also features a beautiful landscape. Long Creek Falls is best viewed from the river itself, which creates a moment of serenity before rafters embark on the class IV rapids that linger further down the river.

Not only are day trips available for rafting, canoeing, and kayaking, but overnight camping and rafting trips are also offered.
