This year we are hosting the Paddle Faster Mud Run, it will take place at Chattooga Belle Farm. We are in the process of  continuing the planning for after the race and let our celebration continue to Chattooga Sounds Camp for music, food, fun AND Vendors! If you want to make the most of your weekend, plan to camp at CSC, come let them show you all the hidden secrets of our area. You can rent a lake kayak or canoe and there’s always White Water Rafting on the Wild and Scenic Chattooga River. Plan for more than just the Mud Run.


The Chattooga River Festival is a charitable 501(c)3 organization that was created to encourage environmental stewardship in conjunction with the responsible recreational use of the Chattooga River watershed. Its mission is to increase awareness of the importance of protecting and preserving the unique ecological environment and scenic beauty of this invaluable resource.


2012 marked the first, in what is anticipated to become an annual event with the 2014 festival already targeted to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Chattooga River Wild and Scenic designation by the United States Congress. The Paddle Faster Mud Run is scheduled for May 10th, 2014, a portion of the proceeds will go to the Chattooga River Conservancy and the local Long Creek Fire Department. The event will be held at Chattooga Belle Farm the morning of Saturday May 10th, at the end of the PFMR the day will continue to Chattooga Sounds Camp for an afternoon of education about our river, music and fun!

  1. I am interested to see if you are accepting applications for craft vendors for the 2014 River Festival.

    Thank you very much for your reply.

    1. We decided yesterday that we WILL have a few vendors at the Festival. The run will take place at Chattooga Belle Farm, then, the event will move over to Chattooga Sounds Camp for music, fun and food!!! Please email your application to catmathis@aol.com Just basic information about what you will be selling. To reserve a booth it will be $30.00, after you are approved I will send you the address to send your payment. We will limit the food vendors since BBQ plates will be sold by CSC. Thanks!
