Driving Directions to Park Units
The park is spread over a 48 mile section of the Chattahoochee River and consists of the river and 15 land units beginning downstream from Buford Dam at Lake Lanier and ending at Peachtree Creek in metro Atlanta.
Below is a list of the land units starting at the Bowmans Island unit and working downstream to the Palisades unit. Below each unit's name is a list of entrances for that unit. Next to the entrance name is a map link and GPS coordinates for that location. Click on the link and enter your current location to obtain driving directions to the entrance. If you have GPS unit in your vehicle enter the GPS coordinates for driving directions to the entrance.
Note: Units closer to Atlanta tend to have more entrances, make sure you have the right entrance. The driving directions will take you to the park boundary; you may have to drive as much as a mile to arrive at a parking lot, trail head, boat launch, etc.
