Altamaha River

The mighty Altamaha River is one of the most impressive waterways in the southern United States. It flows generally eastward for 137 miles toward the Atlantic Ocean from its origin at the confluence of the Oconee River and Ocmulgee River. It meets the ocean near Brunswick. No dams are directly on the Altamaha, though some are on the Oconee and the Ocmulgee. Including its tributaries, the Altamaha River's drainage basin is about 14,000 square miles in size, qualifying it among the larger river basins of the U.S. Atlantic coast.
