ChattATL Paddle at Riverview Landing
Mableton, GA

Join the Georgia Conservancy and REI on Saturday, July 23 for a relaxing flat water paddle on the beautiful and resurgent Chattahoochee River.

While underutilized by outdoor recreation enthusiasts, this stretch of river just west of Atlanta offers metro Atlanta paddlers some of the best access to flat water padding in the region.

Guests will meet at Riverview Landing, just outside the I-285 perimeter, and paddle the beautiful 11-mile stretch of river to the DNR boat ramp near Sweetwater Creek State Park. Paddlers can choose between bringing their own canoe or kayak or renting a kayak from REI (a limited number of kayaks are available, so register fast!)

The Georgia Conservancy will be hosting an after-paddle party at Riverview Landing, featuring a riverside cookout and complementary SweetWater Brewing Company beer.

We will meet at The Market at Riverview Landing (6269 Riverview Road, SE | Mableton, GA) at 10:00 AM on Saturday for orientation and an overview of the paddle. We will conclude the paddle at the Highway 166 Bridge around 3:00 PM and shuttle back to Riverview Landing. Ice cold SweetWater beer and water will be immediately available. The cookout will get started around 4:30 p.m.

For participants interested in shuttling their own boats earlier in the afternoon, meet at Riverview Landing as early as 9:00 AM to drop of your boats then head to our take-out. There will be an REI Staff Member there to explain the directions to DNR Boat Ramp at Highway 166 take-out. You will then drop off your cars and head back to Riverview in a shuttle vehicle waiting for you. This is the suggested option for anyone bringing their own boats so we don't have to run a second shuttle once we get off the river.


The ChattATL Paddle at Riverview Landing is one of our twelve Heartland Rivers of Georgia trips featuring camping, paddling and stewardship in south and central Georgia. The series brings to light conservation efforts, economic development and recreational opportunities on the Flint, Ochlockonee, Ocmulgee, Ogeechee, Chattahoochee, Altamaha, Satilla, Savannah and Yellow rivers, as well as Spring Creek near Bainbridge.

Largely unknown to the Georgia outdoor enthusiast, Georgia’s heartland rivers are a treasure trove of unparalleled natural beauty and recreation opportunity just a short drive from home.
