Chattahoochee NRA resumes boat rentals, entrance fees

The Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, reopening in stages after this spring’s COVID-19 shutdown, announced that authorized boat rental companies and fishing guides can begin operating – and that entrance fees once again will be charged.

A National Park Service Facebook posting asks visitors to maintain a social distance of at least six feet, wear a face mask around crowded parking lots and boat ramps, and bring water to keep hydrated.

In a separate Facebook posting, the Chattahoochee National Park Conservancy said commercial services permitted to reopen are Nantahala Outdoor Center, River Through Atlanta, High Country Outfitters, Shoot the Hooch, Deep South Fly Anglers, Kayak Classes of Georgia, Tie One On and $10 Tubing.

Entrance fees are $5 for a daily pass and $40 for an annual pass. Fee information: https://bit.ly/3ewwtsG

“DO NOT purchase a daily pass online before you arrive at the park, as all spots may be taken and there is no refund on daily passes,” the Park Service said. Information: https://www.facebook.com/CRNRA/
