Canoochee River, Claxton


The Canoochee, which originates in Emanuel County, is the largest tributary of the Ogeechee, which it joins near Savannah. It flows southeastward along the boundaries of Candler and  Evans counties, then passes through Fort Stewart before joining the Ogeechee in Bryan County. It has the dubious distinction of having the largest water snakes in Georgia. It can be accessed at Rocks River Park, just north of Claxton on U.S. 301.
