Are you ready for a truly wild adventure, exploring everything Georgia’s astonishing waterways have to offer?
Then clear your calendar for Paddle Georgia! Each year 350 people of all ages and walks of life show up to spend a week (and roughly 100 miles) on a different Georgia river, sleep in what amounts to a gypsy camp on the floor of a high school gym (or out on the football field for those who want to rough it in relative privacy), eat together, laugh together and complain together about sunburn and sore shoulders. And they do it all with grins on their faces.
As is true around the world, the rivers we paddle have troubles, and the proceeds of Paddle Georgia go toward supporting river protection efforts all over the state of Georgia.
But the real purpose of Paddle Georgia is to help you experience the river—not just from your car windows—but as a place coursing with history, raucous wildlife, and a sweet, meditative slowness that only can be found in a watery place.
This is what keeps people—all kinds of people—coming back to Paddle Georgia each year for a refreshing baptism on a hot week in June.
