Chattahoochee River – Metro Outposts & Recreation

Exploring the stunning beauty and serenity of the Chattahoochee River is one of the top things to do for Atlanta’s residents and visitors.

Nantahala Outdoor Center’s Metro Atlanta Outposts are conveniently located just north of downtown at Powers Island in Sandy Springs and Johnson Ferry in Marietta in the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. Choose from a number of river trips and rentals like tubing, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), rafting, and inflatable kayaks. With half-day and full-day rentals available, you and your group can shoot the ‘Hooch with up to eight miles of flatwater and Class I-II whitewater.

Home to over 240 bird species and an abundance of plant life, the Chattahoochee is an Atlanta treasure that is beautiful in all seasons. From the graceful blue heron to colorful trout lilies, redbuds, azaleas, and fall’s changing leaves, there’s always something to enjoy.
