Withlacoochee River

The Withlacoochee River is 115 miles long. It originates northwest of Nashville, Georgia. It flows south through Berrien County where it joins the New River and forms part of the boundary between Berrien and Cook counties. It then flows south into Lowndes County. At Troupville, the Little River joins the Withlacoochee River and continues to flow south and forms part of the boundary between Lowndes and Brooks counties. The river then flows into Florida for 1.34 miles before returning into Georgia for an additional 2.44 miles. It then returns to Florida, forming the northeast boundary of Madison County, Florida and the western boundary of Hamilton County, Florida and eventually merges with the Suwannee at Suwannee River State Park west of Live Oak, Fla.
