Spring Creek Paddle
Brinson, GA

Join the Georgia Conservancy on our first-ever paddle of Spring Creek in Seminole and Decatur counties. Spring Creek, a natural tributary of the Flint River, meets the Flint and the Chattahoochee River at Lake Seminole in extreme Southwest Georgia.

Our Saturday paddle will begin at US Highway 84 in Brinson, Georgia and conclude at Smith Landing, 7.5 miles downstream. Paddlers will enjoy crisp spring waters, bottomland swamps and blue holes during their time on Spring Creek.

This paddle is in June, so be prepared for many stops to cool off.

This is a day trip, but two-nights of camping at Seminole State Park are being offered FREE of charge.  If you plan to camp, please indicate this during registration. If you are interested in staying in a cabin for the weekend, please register at the Seminole State Park website.

The Spring Creek Paddle 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.
