Most white water rafting rivers in South Carolina are located near Sumter and Chattahoochee National Forest in the Northwest corner of the state. White water rafters can float relaxing Class II rapids or plummet down a tough Class V canyon through dense forests and undeveloped lands.
The Chattooga River, located on the western border of Oconee County and has been designated as “Wild & Scenic” and flows freely along the South Carolina/Georgia border. The Chattooga was federally protected in 1974 by the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act, forever preserving its rugged river gorge from development.
This gives, the Chattooga delivers breathtaking scenery and treasured whitewater in an unmatched wilderness setting.
