Things To Do

The Chattahoochee River is a great place to float or fish on sunny afternoon. Or go for a spin on the muti-use trails in the Cochran Shoals unit. The 48 miles of river and 15 land units that make up the park can keep you busy for a whole day or just a few hours for a quick getaway from the fast pace of the city life.

    Drive no further than the Chattahoochee River to wet a line for Rainbow, Brown, or maybe even a Brook Trout. Good Luck!
