Tugaloo Lake Paddle - A Beautiful Hidden Gem
May 13, 2016 02:41PM ● Published by Melanie Heisinger
This relaxing and scenic paddle will begin in the morning and will be guided to a spot on the lake to have lunch. After enjoying lunch, the guide will lead to back to shore.
This is the first year that the parks have launched the Hidden Gems series, so this is the first event hosted by the rangers that highlights a paddle on Tugaloo Lake. The lake is located in the northeast section of Tallulah Gorge State Park on the border of Georgia (Habersham and Rabun counties) and South Carolina (Oconee County). The reservoir is 597 acres. A portion of the lake is within park boundaries and you drive on an unpaved road to the lake boat ramp.
As a result of the roads to the Lake being somewhat obscure, you will need a four wheel drive or an all wheel drive vehicle. The road leading to the lake is a gravel road that is steep in spots.
Children must be 8 or older.
Meet at the Interpretive Center from there we will drive down as a group (you can car pool).
May 14th, 10am - 2:30pm
