Ogeechee River


The Ogeechee River originates in Taliaferro County, at the confluence of the North and South forks. It flows southeastward for approximately 250 miles to empty into Ossabaw Sound and the Atlantic Ocean. The Canoochee River is a tributary to the Ogeechee River, joining it along the Bryan/Chatham County border.
