White Water Rafting & Ziplining in South Carolina

Long Creek SC is nestled in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains within Oconee County. The Chattooga River, made infamous in 1971 movie classic “Deliverance”, flows south along the state border of South Carolina and Georgia. While South Carolina is known for its beaches and seafood, adventurers also know it has incredible mountains, rivers and scenic lakes in its Blue Ridge corner of the state. Long Creek SC, the home to Wildwater’s Chattooga adventure center, is right in the middle of this Blue Ridge lake and river country. Nearby tranquil Lake Tugaloo is where the SUP Tours and Kayak Tours take place.

Southern Living has said that rafting the Chattooga River is the “#1 Thing Southerners Must Do”. The Chattooga River is a National Wild and Scenic River, this river status protects and treasures the beauty of this free flowing river. We sure think Southern Living got it right – to experience the river is downright magical. If you have never been rafting on the Chattooga River before, its important to know that there are two different sections of the river that are for commercial rafting – Section 3 and Section 4. Section 3 is an easier stretch of water with mostly Class 2 and 3 rapids and one big rapid at the end, and is suitable for ages 8 and up. Section 4 is the pinnacle of Southeastern white water with its famous Five Falls of tight, technical Class 4 and 4+ rapids in a beautiful gorge. Suitable for ages 12 and up, we recommend first timers start with Section 3 and work up to Section 4 for the best experience.

Ziplining in South Carolina is best in the Blue Ridge Mountains – where the natural elevation gains help fuel fast and long ziplines in the trees. Try it and see why zippers love our Chattooga Ridge Canopy Tours – where you fly through the trees overlooking the Chattooga river valley and Blue Ridge Mountains. Yes, you can see into Georgia’s Blue Ridge (right next door) and the North Carolina Smokies on a clear day!

Westernmost South Carolina is easy to get to for rafting and canopy tours – its only 1 ½ hours from Greenville SC and 2 ½ hours from Atlanta, GA.
