The restrooms at the Cochran Shoals unit of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area are closed due to plumbing problems.  The park staff has placed portable toilets to accommodate park visitors for the interim. 

The plumbing has been an on-going issue at the Cochran Shoals restroom and park staff is working on the replacement with new restrooms.  The construction will begin on Nov 1, 2007 for a new restroom at the Interstate North parking area of Cochran Shoals. A second restroom will be placed at the Columns Drive parking area of Cochran Shoals with a scheduled construction start date of March 2008.  These dates are approximate and will be contingent upon weather and any other construction obstacles that may arise during the process. 

For more information, contact the park headquarters at 678-538-1200.

All Trout have a protective membrane or "slime coat" that covers their scales and is their first line of defense against infection and disease. Damage to this coating can severely hurt the fish. Wetting your hands or limiting contact with the fish increases the likelihood that the fish will survive.
