Chattooga River whitewater rafting offers the mild Section III and the wild Section IV, two distinct and memorable river trips. The Chattooga delivers breathtaking scenery and treasured whitewater in an unmatched wilderness setting. NOC has been leading trips on this federally designated wild and scenic river since the company's beginning in 1972.

Section III - This section offers Class II-III rapids, with a big finale at Bull Sluice Rapid. Great for families with older children and for youth groups, the Chattooga is a river that begs to be explored.

Section IV - Made famous by the film "Deliverance," Section IV is the classic Southeastern whitewater rafting run. The trip's highlight is arguably the run through the famous Five Falls, where five tumultuous Class IV+ rapids unfold in quick succession.

Group and off-season rates are available.

All NOC Chattooga River trips depart from our Chattooga outpost, near Clayton.
