Ohoopee River

The Ohoopee River originates in Washington County near Tennille Georgia and flows south for approximately 119 miles before emptying into the Altamaha River along the southern border of Tatnall County. The Altamaha River – Georgia’s largest river – then flows eastward to empty into the Atlantic Ocean.

The Ohoopee is a blackwater river contained within Georgia’s most extensive riverine sandhill covering 65 miles of the upper river basin’s eastern shore.  The Ohoopee’s bright white sandbars hug the twists and turns of this meandering river and give it amazing contrast with it’s dark red tinted waters.
