'Blueway' canoe channel in works for West Chickamauga Creek

Posted: Updated:

CHICKAMAUGA, GA. (Times Free Press) -- How would you like to rent a canoe in Chickamauga, Ga., float down West Chickamauga Creek past historical markers at Chickamauga Battlefield showing where Confederate troops forded the water, stop for a creekside lunch in Fort Oglethorpe and then pull out at Camp Jordan?

That daylong canoe trip is drifting closer to reality.

Fort Oglethorpe and East Ridge have concrete canoe launches on order, and Chickamauga will start construction this week on a wood-sided restroom near a natural canoe launch at the historic Lee and Gordon's Mill.

Fort Oglethorpe's canoe launch will be installed this summer behind a cluster of restaurants -- O'Charley's, Logan's Roadhouse and Panera Bread -- on Battlefield Parkway west of Dietz Road. Restaurant officials are interested in installing tables outside near the creek, Fort Oglethorpe City Manager Ron Goulart said.
