The Chattooga National Wild & Scenic River begins at the base of Whitesides Mountain in North Carolina and flows in a southwesterly direction to form the border between South Carolina and Georgia. One of the wildest and most beautiful whitewater rivers in the country, the Chattooga was the first river in the Southeast to be designated “Wild & Scenic” in 1974 by Congress and was used as the location for the movie Deliverance. The Chattooga is surrounded by the Sumter and Chattahoochee National Forests.**
As a free flowing river, water levels on the Chattooga vary with the amount of rainfall each season. The highest water levels and the most high adventure trips are usually in the Spring and early Summer or after a heavy rain. By late Summer and Fall the water level is usually lower, and trips are more relaxed and slower paced.
