Camp Jordan Canoe Launches

Camp Jordan Canoe Launch

PROJECT SUMMARY

CTI assisted with the installation of two canoe launches at Camp Jordan Park along West Chickamauga Creek. As a multi-jurisdictional effort, the Tennessee River/Chickamauga Creeks Blueway Alliance (TRCCBA) is working with officials in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi to  extend official Blueway designation on the entire length of the Tennessee River and locally upstream on the South and West Chickamauga Creeks beyond their confluence at Camp Jordan.  It is the intent of TRCCBA to extend the Blueway designation from the Tennessee River up the South Chickamauga Creek into the City of Ringgold and up the West Chickamauga Creek through Fort Oglethorpe, along the Chickamauga Battlefield and into the City of Chickamauga, Georgia, then on south upstream to the state lands at historic Mountain Cove.
