Oconee River - Buckeye Landing
East Dublin, GA 31027
The beautiful Oconee River is the site of the crossing of Spanish explorer Hernando DeSoto and Sherman's Army. Near Dublin, the river is home of the Rubust Red Horse Sucker, a fish once thought to be extinct. The Oconee was one of the first Georgia rivers to support inland water navigation, and there are Mississippian-period mounds located along the banks of the river. South of Dublin, rock cliffs can be found. See cranes, wild hogs and other wildlife; fish for catfish, largemouth bass and bream; and plan to launch from Buckeye Park Landing with a park and boat ramp on the river in East Dublin.
