Abbotts Bridge Unit, Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area


Join REI and Chattahoochee Parks Conservancy (CPC) for our 4th Annual Chattahoochee River Paddle and Campout at the Abbotts Bridge Unit. The National Park Service opens up the Abbotts Bridge Unit for camping once a year, exclusively for this event! Spend the weekend paddling down the river and enjoying the fall weather on one of Georgia’s iconic natural resources. Kayaks, paddleboards, and canoes will be available for anyone who does not own one. Dinner and breakfast are also provided! Just bring your basic camping gear, snacks, and weather-appropriate clothing to enjoy this night under the stars. 

Proceeds from this event support CPC, the official friends group for the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area (CRNRA) whose mission is to build a community of support for the national park and promote stewardship of its cultural and natural resources.
