Wild and Scenic Chattooga River

Flowing along the South Carolina-Georgia border, 15 minutes from Westminster, SC, the famous Chattooga National Wild & Scenic River provides whitewater rafting adventures and breath-taking views through the beautiful Sumter National Forest. Divided into four sections, trips along Section 3 provide a perfect outing for families and youth groups, while Section 4 provides more continuous rapids and steep drops for skilled enthusiasts.

Spring highwaters bring the ultimate thrill of whitewater rafting, such as seen in the movie Deliverance, which was filmed on the Chattooga. Trips during the fall provide the spectacular display of foliage. The height of the fall leaf season is usually around mid October.

Information about the Wild and Scenic Chattooga River Area, including the tri-state area of South Carolina, Georgia and North Carolina, is available at Chattooga-River.Net.
