Apalachee River


The Apalachee River originates in Gwinnett County, flows southeastward for approximately 65 miles, before emptying into Lake Oconee and the Oconee River. The Oconee River then flows south to converge with the Ocmulgee River, forming the Altamaha River, which empties into the Atlantic Ocean.
