Located at 82 Dietz Road - Ringgold, Georgia 30736
In northwest Georgia the cities of Chickamauga, Fort Oglethorpe and Ringgold have joined with both Catoosa and Walker counties in improving access for canoeists and kayakers. Chickamauga has a launch at Lee & Gordon’s Mills near U.S. Highway 27. From there, the creek meanders through the Chickamauga Battlefield Park to its next launch point in which is near Logan’s Roadhouse and O’Charley’s where the creek passes under Battlefield Parkway in Fort Oglethorpe. The next stop downstream is the launch built in Catoosa County on West Chickamauga Creek at Cloud Springs and Dietz Roads. Ringgold’s launch point is in the downtown district and at Graysville Bridge and provide access to South Chickamauga Creek. Paddlers on the west and south branches of Chickamauga Creek will meet across the state line, at Camp Jordan Park in East Ridge, Tenn., before passing beneath Interstate 75 and following the Brainerd Levee enroute to the Tennessee River Park, located downstream of Chickamauga Dam near Chattanooga State Technical Community College. Total paddling distance from the Walker County launch point, through Catoosa County and on to Camp Jordan, is about 20 miles.
