The Creek Indian word Wetumpka meant “rumbling waters” and you’ll see what they meant when you try the six-mile stretch of Coosa River Whitewater, known as Moccasin Gap, between Jordan dam and the town that is a rite of passage for thousands of Alabama paddlers.
Both area outfitters have landings and campsites in Wetumpka, with shuttles to the put-ins and expert guides for first-timers. The trip may be short, but it will be one you remember. Whitewater choices between Class II and Class IV.
Plan your trip
If you’ve been before, you know to put in below Jordan Dam off Highway 231. If you haven’t, please contact either of the two river outfitters in the area: Coosa Outdoor Center or Coosa River Adventures. Courtesy, Alabama Scenic River Trail
