  • EXTREME HAZARD - Wise Creek Canoe launch, FSR 1098 temporarily closed

    Forest Service Road 1098 (Ocmulgee Church Road) and the Wise Creek canoe launch on the Ocmulgee River are temporarily closed. The site remains closed and is EXTREMELY UNSAFE. We're dealing with a huge challenge of removing many embedded rebar spikes that have been discovered below the water's surface. The water levels have remained high all summer, making assessing the situation impossible without specialized equipment. Please heed all warnings and closures, and do not attempt to access the site. Please contact the Oconee Ranger District Office for more information at 706-485-7110.
