Abstract:
The Chattahooga River, which runs through western portion of our state, is apt to become much more familiar to North Carolinians through its projected inclusion by Congress in a system of National Wild and Scenic Rivers. The system will be modeled on the current network of national parks and national historic monuments with which many North Carolinians are familiar. Governors of the four states through which the river runs have given their public support for the river's inclusion, as have representatives from many outdoorsmen's organizations.

The goal of this designation is to preserve the character of the river, including its free-flowing state. Wilson Creek has been called a whitewater boater’s dream and premier paddling destination.
