ALTAMAHA RIVERę
www.sandyjones.com
Just over 100 miles long, the Altamaha River is formed by the confluence of the Ocmulgee and Oconee Rivers just east of Lumber City. Critical habitat is found here for bald eagles, swallow-tailed kites and red-cockaded woodpeckers. The waterway is flush with wildlife, and not the first man-made dam. Boat ramps and landings facilities are located in each county as well as a range of services from bait and tackle shops to picnic areas and marked hiking trails.

ALTAMAHA RIVER WATERWAY
The Altamaha River has been designated by The Nature Conservancy as one of the 75 "Last Great Places" in the world, and you can explore this magnificent ecosystem on your own or with local outfitters and guides who can help arrange a paddling or fishing trip for you and your group.

From roadside farm-fresh vegetable stands to antique shops, you'll discover many unique treasures on the highways and byways of this region - just far enough from the big cities, yet close enough for a comfortable day's outing no matter what your destination may be.
