RIVER RAFTING FISHING BOATING
Whitewater rafting on the Chattooga River is one of the most unforgettable experiences in the Southeast. Designated “Wild & Scenic” by Congress in 1974, forever preserving its rugged river gorge. The Chattooga River offers breathtaking scenery, treasured whitewater all in an unmatched wilderness setting.
Chattooga Section 3 is great for ages 8+ and offers a more “mild and scenic” rafting adventure for kids and adults to experience swimming holes, Class II-III rapids and an exciting Class IV finish at Bull Sluice. Chattooga Section IV is for ages 12+ and picks up the pace with Seven Foot Falls and culminates with the infamous Five Falls, where five adrenaline-pumping Class IV rapids follow in quick succession. Both trips feature a scenic lunch along either a beautiful stretch of river or at the base of Long Creek Falls.
Some of Rabun County’s most popular fly fishing locations include: Tallulah River, Chattooga River, Soque River, Moccasin Creek, Warwoman Creek and Black Rock Creek, just to name a few. The Georgia Department of Natural Resources stocks 14 bodies of water in Rabun with trout, and those areas see the most activity among fly fishers.
