Such a beautiful natural area. Such a great day in floating on the river taking in all the beautiful sites of the flora and fauna! Too bad the National Park Service decided not to man this National Park. There was no ranger available to award the junior ranger badge to our daughter and when I called the Park, I got a ranger who said all the rangers were working remotely and my daughter wouldn't be able to receive the badge she worked so hard to earn. We visited 11 National Parks on this road trip and all but Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area had a ranger available to award the Park badge to our daughter. This begs the question, what are the rangers at the the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area doing to serve the public?

I got lost in the woods but was able to survive many days living off the land like I did in Alaska..

I really loved this park! It was so nice to sit and just listen to the sound of the water. My son even found it to be relaxing! It was nice and peaceful!

The Chattahoochee River National Recreational Area is a unique national park site in that it is made up of multiple units throughout the Atlanta area. My daughter and I visited the Island Ford area where the park visitor center is located in Hewlett Lodge. She filled out a junior ranger booklet in the lobby and was able to complete enough activities to earn a new badge. All of the rangers we interacted with were very nice and extremely helpful. There is a large parking area around the visitor center that does require a fee. There are pay stations outside where you display a receipt after paying. We walked along the trail behind the visitor center that runs by the river. There were quite a few people tubing and hanging out in the water. We walked by some of the large rock formations before heading back. We also went a few minutes down the road to visit the Vickery Creek unit. We parked in the Mill park area and took a short hike to the waterfall. We enjoyed our first visit to the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area and hope to visit other units in the future.

We visited this national park on the Memorial Day weekend. This park runs through a developed area outside of Atlanta, GA. It was hard to imagine that civilization was so close by. Hundreds of people were canoeing, tubing, or rafting down the tranquil Chattahoochee River. It was 96 degrees. Nature trails were well maintained and clean.
