Currently, multiple partners–from non-profits like the Trust for Public Land (TPL) to local governments like the City of Chattahoochee Hills and the City of Atlanta–are working together to create “paddle in” campsites along the Chattahoochee River between Atlanta and McIntosh Reserve in Carroll County. These unique campsites are set to be ready for use sometime in the spring or summer of 2024, and Georgia River Network, which assisted TPL in securing state grants for the project, wants to be among the first groups to utilize these facilities.
Thus, we’ve planned a two-day, two-night journey for the new water trail amenities for the first weekend in September. Our route will depend upon the facilities that are completed and opened to the public by that date.
The event planned will include catered meals, vehicle support for camp gear as possible, shuttle services, evening educational programs and loads of fun. Participation will be limited by campsite capacity. Canoe and kayak rentals will be available for additional fees.
Check back periodically as we secure more information about the progress of the Chattahoochee River Water Trail’s “paddle in” campsites!
