Georgia is home to some of the best river paddling in the country, a state teeming with such world class destinations as the Chattooga River and the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge. The Peach State provides every type of paddling experience, from ocean kayaking to wilderness swamps; whitewater both mild and wild, and epic canoe camping on three rivers over 200 miles long. Here Suzanne Welander, author of Canoeing and Kayaking Georgia, shares five of her favorite off-the-beaten path paddling destinations.
Covering more than 3,700 miles of Georgia’s waterways, Canoeing and Kayaking Georgia is the definitive guide to Georgia paddling, from whitewater to wilderness swamps. New for 2015, the completely updated 2nd edition adds five new waterways, including the new urban whitewater course in Columbus, with all new maps and data for all 771 access points.
