Whitewater Day on the Chattahoochee in Columbus 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, Ocmulgee, Ogeechee, Chattahoochee, Altamaha, Satilla and Savannah rivers.

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.
