Experience the thrills of outdoor adventure—whether paddling the rapids of the Chattooga River or setting off on a zip-line adventure through the treetops—in the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains.

The Destination
Once home to Native American tribes who lived off the area's abundant berries and trout, the Chattooga River Gorge still abounds with old-growth forest, placid lakes, and cold mountain streams—the setting of your Wildwater Chattooga adventures. The swift-moving Chattooga River is a rafter's dream, while the 20-acre Historic Long Creek Academy—set within walking distance of Wildwater's Chattooga Cottages—is rigged up for the zip-line adventure of a lifetime. And it's all amid a network of trails steeped in early-morning mists and Native American history.

The Digs
Overlooking Academy Lake, Wildwater's Chattooga Cottages offer serene quiet. Each one can accommodate up to four guests and is equipped with a full kitchen, a queen futon downstairs, a loft with a set of twin beds, satellite TV with DVD player, a spacious deck, linens, and towels. Appointed in French Country style, the cottages feature colorful fabrics, art, and accessories. Head outside and fire up the charcoal grill, or gather in the gazebo while trading tales from the day's adventures.

The Diversions
Adrenaline-fueled but family-friendly, Wildwater's Chattooga River Section III rafting trip takes guests through class II and III whitewater on swift currents. An experienced guide preps paddlers for increasingly difficult rapids, the culmination of which is Bull Sluice, a 14-foot plunge over the course of two drops. Afterward, you'll enjoy a riverside lunch and, if the mood strikes, you'll have a chance to swim.

If you prefer wings to water, float among the treetops on the Chattooga Ridge canopy tour, featuring half a mile of high-flying fun that includes four bridges and 12 zip lines, all spread out over 19 scenic acres. You'll be given all the necessary gear, and a bit of guidance, before launching off the 50-foot-high Bell Tower, boasting 360-degree mountain views.

  • The Chattooga River forms part of the lower northeast border with Georgia and offers some of the best white-water rafting and canoeing in the country.
