Etowah River Trail Launch Sites and Rentals

North Georgia’s best family paddling takes place on the Etowah River. The river may be accessed at four launch sites established in and around Cartersville which are part of the 163-mile long Etowah River Water Trail . Along the way, paddlers can see more Native American fish weirs (some prehistoric) than are found on all other Georgia rivers combined. Historic sites include the prehistoric Etowah Indian Mounds and antebellum estates. The Etowah River is also one of the most biologically diverse rivers in the country with more than 76 native fish species. Hope you enjoy and value the Etowah River as much as we do! For more information see Etowah Water .
