This is one remote fishing area. I took FS Road 464 to the bridge crossing the river at the GA/SC border. It is a 7 mile gravel road which was not marked. So from Clayton, Ga. take Warwoman Rd. for 14 miles then turn right on GA HWY 28 and go 1.6 miles and you will see a gravel road... More

Our family with 7 adults, 1 older child, and 1 teenager had a great time hiking in and playing on the river. I would recommend hiking in with boots/tennis shoes and having water shoes. There are no bathroom facilities.

Friendly and great service the moment you step in the door. Caring and experienced guides who are so incredibly knowledgeable that makes you wish every guide was this cool. My guide Paul Speed, is hands down the best tour guide I have ever had in any tour ever. The tour guide leader, Link, was also incredibly charismatic and personable. Paul... More

Whitewater rafting with Southeast Expeditions was an incredible time. My guide, Paul Speed, was incredibly knowledgeable about the river, all its features, and how to navigate them, as well as made the entire trip a lot of fun in general. This was my seventh time whitewater rafting, and this was by far the best guide I have had.

We did the Section III, Intermediate, whitewater trip on 8/7/14 and had a great time! The trip guide, Luke, and raft guide, Raleigh, were both experienced guides and a lot of fun. Everything was great....the check-in, ride over to trail head, lunch on the river, and all the activities planned during our raft trip. There were several younger children on... More

Everything was GREAT! The weather was beautiful. The water was cool. The guides were friendly and informative, even the bus driver; there was a 10 minute drive to and from the sight. Nutritious lunch was included. Great outing for family, friends, coworkers; anybody!

Our raft guide, Paul, was awesome!! Knew the river like the back of his hand. And he was very fun and entertaining. Our raft... More

Recently did the Chattooga 4. There had been torrents of rain for the prior few weeks so the rapids and falls were awesome and exciting - especially for a first timer ! We choose to raft with N.O.C. They provided a great day of fun and a great lunch is included. They also provided a "GREAT" guide. A lanky young... More

Rafting down the Chattooga with noc far exceeded our expectations! This river is a perfect gem flowing w/ strength and grace through SC and GA. You are surrounded by the pristine beauty of rock formations, majestic waterfalls and rich green trees and mountains set off by the vibrant blue sky canvas. The guides are top notch professionals that put safety first.... More
