Document - Chattooga National Wild and Scenic River Upper River Use Report

Abstract

This report contributes to an ongoing discussion of recreation in the Chattooga River Wild and Scenic River (WSR) corridor and the effectiveness of current management practices. These practices seek to mitigate predicted conflict between visitors, limit congestion, and preserve 21-miles of free-flowing river in the upper stretches of the Chattooga. The stretches of river (also called river reaches) in this WSR hold immeasurable value to different visitor types, particularly anglers, hikers, and whitewater boaters.
